Welcome 




Amig 





Hi, and welcome to another jam-packed 
issue. This month we welcome another new 
member of staff, Richard Baguley our new 
staff writer, who will be maintaining the 
same exacting standards of reviewing, writ- 
ing and reporting that you've come to 
expect from us. 

In this issue we take a long hard look at 
the phenomenon that is multimedia. Any of 
you who attended the Amiga Shopper Show 
last year may have seen multimedia in 
action, because there was an interactive 
show guide there, powered - of course - by 
an Amiga. In the future you will be able to 
use interactive multimedia applications all 
the time to get the information you need 
when you need it, but for the present, the 
Amiga is the number one home multimedia 
machine. We explore the reasons why. 

On Page 38 we take a look at what's 
available in terms of PCMCIA memory cards, 
and consider what else we expect to see to 
fill that little slot in the coming months. 




We take a look at 
on line gamesplay- 
ing, and offer our 
modem-owning read- 
ers the chance to 
play for a week com- 
pletely free and for 
gratis, so if you were 
considering buying a Marcus D y $on ' edi,or 
modem, do it before the last week of March 
and get yourself involved. 

It has been a great month on the games 
front, and we may not have had quantity, 
but we've certainly had plenty of quality. We 
have big reviews of The Chaos Engine, A- 
Train, Abandoned Places 2 and Flashback, 
plus a host of other worthy pieces of inter- 
esting entertainment software. 

The first examples of A1200 hardware 
have hit the streets, and we compare two 
accelerators, one a budget unit and one a 
high-end piece of kit that can make things 
go faster than ever.

on the might of the

level playable demo. 
We think it's a bit of 
a stormer - so load

and find out for yourself! You could even win a

Digital Illusions 

If you've never seen 
an image processor 
before, you've been 
missing out on a 
major component in 
the Amiga revolu- 
tion. This shareware 
program can do 
many of the tasks 
that expensive commercial programs like Art 
Department Professional excel at. So, if you 
want to bend, stretch and warp your pictures 
in a truly mind boggling fashion, gives this a 
go - you'll be impressed! 

MultiMedia Demo 

The only way to really appreciate multimedia is 
to try it out for yourself. So we thought it 
would be a good idea to give you a smallish 
demo of multimedia to appreciate. It's been 
coded up by regular Amiga Format contributor 
Phil South. In it, you'll see a few examples of 
multimedia programs on the Amiga, together 
with a few brief notes on their good and bad 
points. We reckon 
you'll get a much 
better idea of the 
potential of the 
subject than mere 
words on paper 
can ever say...

GETTING STARTED 




BASIC DONG OPTIONS AND 



Here's what you should see when you boot the 
Coverdisk. Some programs will not run from this 
cut down Workbench though. 

This is the screen you should get after turning 
on your Amiga; insert the Coverdisk and dou- 
ble click on the Coverdisk icon. By double 
clicking, I mean clicking twice rapidly with the 
left mouse button. Remember, the tip of the 
mouse pointer has to be over the icon in order 
for the computer to know just what you are 
pointing at! 

To run either the Dong demo, the 
Multimedia demo, or the Digital Illusions pro- 
gram, move the mouse pointer to the relevant 
icon and double click. Now, on certain Amigas 
some of the programs will not run in this fash- 
ion (see 'Unofficially' below) but you should 
find this method easier than the Unofficial one. 

If you are using an Amiga with only 512K 
of memory, none of the programs will work! I 
regret this disk is very much 1Mb only. Even 
with 1Mb, you may get a 103 "out of memory" 
error message. Try turning off and disconnect- 
ing any extra drives that you have. 

UNOFFICIALLY 

The Dong demo will not run from the icon on 
an A500. The Multimedia demo will not run 
from the icon on an A600. Various other setups 
and systems will not run the programs from 
the icons... What do you do? 

This - when the Coverdisk has started boot- 
ing (the disk drive light comes on) hold down 
the Ctrl and D keys. Eventually, you will see a 
blue screen, with a Commodore copyright mes- 
sage and the words 'Break - CLI'. You will also 
see a little prompt to type. 

The Dong demo is called Dong, the 
Multimedia demo is called MultiMedia2 and the 
Digital Illusions program is called Start. Simply 
type any of these words, press the Return key 
(the one with the bent arrow on it) and the 
program will load. Don't worry about using 
capitals or lower case (big or little) letters 
because the Amiga doesn't care. 



DPTIfflE 
PLAYERS ► DJ1E 



EXIT 




The options screen can be used to select one or two You can choose whether you want the fire-button to 

players. Press fire to change an option and up and down control your jumps, or up on the joystick. I find the Kit- 

to move the cursor. ter is a much easier option. 





The main aim is to collect the Star Crystals* A counter of 
how many are left to collect is displayed at the top right 
of the screen. 



Dong has razor sharp claws, but In order to inflict dam- 
age and kill enemies, he must have jumped and be 
spinning when contact occurs. 



THE SUBTLE BITS 





Carefully look out for these cracks in the scenery. They 
indicate weak spots that can be jumped on in order to 
fall down to the next bit of the current level. 



There are a few invisible blocks in the game. Try jump- 
ing around, noting any areas that deflect you. Invisible 
blocks are for going up. 



COVERDISK 



WIN A FREE COPY OF DONG COMPETITION 



Hey, there's a free-to-enter 
competition in conjunction 
with DM. You could win one of 
10 copies of the finished game. 
Interested? 

All you have to do is find 
the secret room with this stick 
man graphic in it. Write down 
the word written underneath, 
and send it together with your 
name and address, on a post- 
card or the back of an envelope 
to; Quack tempo. Amiga 
Format, 30 Monmouth St Bath 
BA1 2BW by April 8 1993, which 
is the closing date. 



Rules: winners will be 
drawn at random. A list of 
them will be printed in a future 
edition of the magazine. 

No employees of Future 
Publishing, DMI or The Hidden 
may enter, nor their close rela- 
tives or anyone owning an 
albino purebred Rottweiler. 
Albino Alsatians or Tozers are 
fine. Oh yes, all owners of 
Cruft's Champions are right out 
matey, as are all their relatives 
down to the third degree. "Do 
you like dogs. Pat"? Oh yes. I 
like all Korean food. 




Hey. if you come across this 
geezer, write down the word 
underneath, send it to us and you 
may win a copy of Dong! 





This is the level selector. If you have completed a level. 
press down to go to the next one. Then press fire to go 

on with the game. 



The main gag of the game is. when you pull the Joystick 
down, you duck! "We've got a morph and we're not 
afraid to use it" mentality. 





The four special abilities can be flicked between by 
pressing the fire-button. To activate them, press the fire- 
button when ducked. 



In order to get special abilities, you must pick up the 
tokens left behind sometimes when you kill enemies. 
Only player one can pick up tokens. 





MULTIMEDIA 



In two player mode, player two cannot pick up special 
ability icons. It's useful to have seven extra lives in 
order to get further, but it's a bit buggy and f lickery . 



Note the restart point: this is one level two. In total 
there Mn five levels In the demo - there will be over 110 
in the finished garnet 




Phil South ■ PAL/NTSC 




To quit the demo, press Ctrl and C. However, it's a 
better idea to remove the disk and turn your 
machine off and on, to fully reset it. 

To tie in with the multimedia feature on Page 
29, we arranged for Phil South to do a little 
demonstration of what multimedia is all about. 
It's not tremendously impressive, but if you've 
never come across multimedia before, the best 
way to learn is to experience it. 

Using it is simple. To run, either click on the 
icon from the cut down Workbench of the 
Coverdisk, or type in the word 'Multimedia2' as 
per the 'Unofficially' instructions opposite. 
After that you'll get the title screen. To quit the 
demo, hold down the Ctrl and C keys. 

What's it all about then? This is a small 
taster of the programs you can get to actually 
create multimedia. Sure, we could have just 
printed four pictures in the magazine, but the 
idea is to give you a small multimedia experi- 
ence. We would have liked to include CanOo 2 
on the list as well, but this proved impossible in 
the event and there's a full review of it on Page 
132 if you are interested. 

Anyway, just click on one of the boxes con- 
taining the names of the four programs 
{AmigaVision, Scala MM200, Deluxe Video III 
and ShowMaker). This brings up a short descrip- 
tion in the text display box. After that you can 
click with the left mouse button on the Show 
Pic box. to get a view of what the software 
costs. It takes a couple of seconds for the pic- 
ture to display - click again to get back to the 
menu. It takes a couple of seconds to get to the 
pictures, so please be patient. 

The uncrunched length of the demo is 
about 250K. One problem with multimedia is 
that it takes up an awful lot of disk space. 
Multimedia will only become common when 
CD-ROM systems, like the COTV and A570 
become the norm. Who knows, we may end up 
doing a Coverdisc instead of a Coverdisk! 
Congratulations to Brett Mitchell, by the way, 
for the rather nifty ProTradcer sound module. 

Many businesses, museums and formal 
educational establishments are very interested 
in multimedia as a way of presenting inform. i- 
tion to those who are remote from them. Sure, 
looking at a CDTV title is nowhere near as much 
fun as actually visiting, say, the British 
Museum. But it would at least give you a good 
idea of what you wanted to check out when 
you really got to the place. 

So, that's multimedia. Remember this is 
only a small teaser but it represents the form 
the future wilt take!

COVERDISK 



Digital 
Illusions 



Let's get one thing straight. Although this pro- 
gram can load 24-bit true colour images, it does 
NOT need a 24-bit display card in order to work. 
Digital Illusions is an image processor, which 
means it can load in IFF graphic files from a paint 
program, and then perform alterations to the 
images. The idea is that you continually select dif- 
ferent processes until you have achieved an 
effect that you like. 

Sounds a bit tedious? Image processors have 
been popular for years on the Amiga, but unless 
you actually sit down and play with it you can't 
see what they do. I doubt if I could do a better 
job of the on-disk documentation in this short 
space, so check it out and start messing around 
with the program. 

Example pictures of just what Digital 
Illusions can do are included in the 
Example Illusions drawer. They will not load into 
Deluxe Paint or Dl, because they have been 
crunched with PowerPacker 4. 



Dl is a hog for memory. It's use on an A500, 
A1000 or older A2000 is very limited, because 
these machines only have 512K of chip RAM. If 
you drag the FastMemFirst icon from the System 
drawer of Workbench on to a copy of your 
Coverdisk, and double click it before it runs, that 
helps matters. Dl works better on an A500 Plus, 
A600, A1200, later A1S0O/A20O0 A3000 or A4000. 
because these all have 1 or 2Mb of chip RAM. 

When 01 loads a picture, the information is 
converted into 24 bit. What this means is that if 
you load a two-colour image, say 10K in size, it 
will occupy over 240K of chip memory. 01 will 
load all of the older IFF formats including 24 bit. 

It will almost certainly NOT load the new 
AGA formats as found on the A1200 and A4000 - 
256 colour and HAM8 files are not recommended. 
To get them means paying a 'shareware' fee to 
get the enhanced version. 

The idea behind shareware is that if you reg- 
ularly use a shareware program or you want the 
enhanced version, you send the author some cash 
(the amount and address are in the readme file). 
You don't have to do this - but if you don't then 
the author won't bother with bug fixes or 
improvements. Plus you can suggest ideas of 
your own to the programmer, and make a new 
Amiga contact too. You know it makes sense! 



COPYRIGHT 

All of the program files on this month's 
Coverdisk are freely distributable. However, 
the copyright of Digital Illusions remains with 
the author (Tonny Espeset). It's his program; 
don't hijack it for your own purposes. Plus he 
deserves some cash for his hard work. 

The image and code copyright of the Dong 
demo remain with The Hidden, and the 
Multimedia Images' copyright remain with the 
software houses concerned. All the music copy- 
right's remain with the musicians who wrote 
them. I would name them but I don't know 
their identities. 

What am I talking about? Well, just don't 
go nicking stuff from the Coverdisk and pass- 
ing it off as your own work. The demos and 
Digital Illusions can be freely copied for your- 
self, but not altered or butchered for your own 
purposes, because you will be breaking the 
law. Got it now? 

I have done everything possible to ensure 
that the disk is free of any computer viruses. 
But no liability for using the disk is assumed by 
either Future Publishing, the duplicators or the 
software authors. Usage is entirely at your own 
risk. Write protect your Coverdisk! Move the 
tab so you can see through the hole!

Protect your Coverdisk 



There are two ways of making a 
copy of your disk, and this is the 
easy one. Don't be daunted by 
the fact that you need to use 
the Shell or CLI: it's actually a lot 
easier than you might think. 
Just follow these simple steps... 




1 Load your Workbench disk. Open the disk, find the icon 
that says Shell or CI I and double-click on it. 




2 When the Shell window appears and the drive light is 
out, type In (0 Is zero, not the letter 0): 

Diskcopy from DFO : to DFO t 

and press the Return key. 




3. The Amiga will now osk you to Insert the 'source' disk. 
It means the disk you want to copy, so put the Coverdisk 
in the drive and press the Return key. 




4. Wait for a while and it will read all the information off 
the Coverdisk, telling you how for it has got. Then it will 
ask you to insert the 'Destination' disk. Put the disk you 
want to copy your Coverdisk on to in the drive and press 
the Return key. Note that the disk does not need to be 
formatted already. 








fr» ) -•-*!(• 



5. Put the source disk and destination disk in a couple 

more times when the Amiga asks for them. When it says 

"Diskcopy Finished" just type in: 

•ndcli 

to get out of the Shell or CLI. You may have to put the 

Workbench disk in again. Now your copy is ready! 



Disk not workin 



We duplicate over 200,000 disks every month. Out of all those, obviously a few will 
be faulty. If the disk or any of the programs will not load or run property, there may 
be a problem. Don't panic! 

If possible, use the DiskDoctor utility on your Workbench disk to rescue it 
before sending it off for a replacement. Details of DiskDoctor can be found in older 
manuals, but not in the A500+/A600 manuals. It is not included with Workbench 3. 

However, if your Coverdisk is in fact faulty, you should send it back INCLUDING 
A STAMPED. ADDRESSED ENVELOPE for a free replacement within one month 
of the cover date to:

Down in the Park on a cold February morning, the stars of Comic Relief show 
extreme professionalism and stoicism in front of the country's media. 

PLANS FOR THIS year's Comic Relief Day were announced on a cold 
and dismal February morning in Butiersca Park. Joining in the cold fes- 
tivities were Joanna Lumlcy (as radiant as ever, even at 10am). Lenny 
Henry (nice bloke, nice and tall). Right Said Fred (consummate profes- 
sionals who can hold a tune). Jakki Brambles (popular with the young 
folk, you know) and Angus Dcuyton (sharp-wmod media personality). 

This year Comic Relief Day is on March 12, the da> after this issue 
of Amiga Format hits the streets. If ii hasn'i happened yet. be sure to 
watch it, but if you've missed it, it's not too late to send some money. 

Also in attendance at Battcrsea Park were Amiga Format editor 
Marcus Dyson and the magazines staff writer Andy Nuttall who were 
there because of Amiga Format's involvement with the Comic 
Relief/Commodore A 1 20(1 bundle (sec story, this page). 

The day highlighted, to journalists from different areas of the media, 
the importance of the charity, as Marcus explains: "It's important to 
send a donation, because on this planet there is enough wealth to feed 
and house every single human being. But some of the cash is in the 
wrong place or being spent on machines that destroy life. So it's up to us 
and Comic Relief to make sure it goes to those who need it. If you want 
to help save a life (and it's far more rewarding than completing Zool). 
watch the show, enjoy yourself, and then send some money." 



THE FIRST SOFTWARF. 

bundle for the A 1 200 has been 
announced by Commodore 
at their UK head office in 
Maidenhead. The pack con- 
tains the A 1 200 itself, a copy 
of Ocean's Sleepwalker game 
and a special Comic Relief 
edition of Amiga Formal. 

There will be 25.000 
packs available through high 
street shops and independent 
dealers for the next few 
months, and £10 per pack sold 
will be donated to the Comic 
Relief charitv. 

The gesture is particularly 
generous because sales of the 
1200 have been strong since 
its release, so if all the packs 
arc sold. Comic Relief will be 
£250.000 better off. 

Ocean are already making a donation of 
£4.32 to Comic Relict from every copy of 
Sleepwalker sold. To celebrate this warm and 
wonderful gesture, now -former Ocean PR man 
Ken Locklcy turned up at the Comic Relief 
launch at Battersea Park (see other story), 
dressed as Ralph the Dog from Sleepwalker. 

But back to the pack. It's a good offer for 
anyone planning to buy an A 1 200. not only do 
you get the machine at the normal list price of 
£399. but you also get the superb Sleepwalker 
game (it got an Format Gold rating of 91 per 
cent in AF44) as well as a special Comic 
Relief issue of AF. And what's more you help 
charity at the same time. Buy one now! 




The new Commodore bundle containing an A 1 200, Ocean's 
Sleepwalker and a Comic Relief edition of Amiga format. A dona- 
tion of £25 from the £399 bundle price goes to the charity.

At the Comic Relief pock launch, editor Marcus 
Dyson proves he can wear a red nose, play 
Sleepwalker, and shamelessly plug Amiga Format 
oil at once. Tim Smith, AF Specials editor and 
Sleepwalker competition winner watches smugly. 



RACE FOR THE SKIES 



CyberRace is the title of the next game 
from Cyberdreams, the creators of the 
excellent HR Gelger-lllustrated adventure 
DarkSeed (AF4A - 72 per cent). 

Continuing their policy of working 
with top scl-fi authors and Illustrators, 
Cyberdreams have commissioned Syd 
Mead, whose design credits include such 
high-profile films as Blade Runner. Tron, 
2010, Star Trek and Allen, to produce the 
in-game artwork and packaging. 

The game Is based around a pair of 
planets at war that have their weapons 
confiscated and replaced by the Cyber 
Track. This Is a futuristic racing area 
where they can battle to the death without 
harming any of the neighbouring civilisa- 
tions - eco-friendliness in the future!

work by designer Syd Mead.

a 60 or 80 Mb hard drive for your machine. 



ZCL HAVE ANNOUNCED ihc release of Commodore- 
approved hard drive expansions for Ihc AI200. The units, 
which must be shop fitted, will not invalidate 
Commodore's 12 month in-home warranty. Although ZCL.

being the only options at present. The prices for a new 
A 1 200 with the hard drive already fitted arc: £539.99 (60

to your existing AI200 il will cost you £219.99 (60 Mb) or 
£279.99 (80Mb). 

The deal is particularly attractive because INDI Direct 
and Calculus will collect an A 1 200 from a home anywhere 
in the UK for an extra charge of only £5. format the hard 
drive, install Workbench, insure the hard drive and return it 
to your home all within a week. If you arc thinking of buy- 
ing a hard drive for your A 1200/600. why not read our 
survey of the services available in next month's issue. 



A Divil of 
a time 




Litil Divil took three years to develop and is due 
for release in April. 

The next release from Gremlin Graphics (the 
team behind the console-beating loot) will 
be Util Divil, due out in April. It's a bizarre. 
isometric 3D adventure which has been in 
development three years now. 

ft's all about a young boy who wanders 
into the Underworld, only to find that a curse 
has been placed on him which prevents him 
from escaping. You must guide him to the 
exit via five levels, each comprising 10 differ- 
ent puzzles. Gremlin reckon a lot of brains 
and brawn are necessary to complete the 
puzzles. If Gremlin keep to their release

Sensible Soccer - probably the best football game in the 
world. Is o sequel on the cords? 



SENSIBLE SOCCER SEQUEL SCOOP! 

Rumour has It that Sensible 
Software are to produce a 
sequel to their best-selling soc- 
cer game. Sensible Soccer. 

The game is currently 
going to be called Sensible 
World of Soccer, and will 
apparently incorporate around 
1,500 teams from all over 
the world, including club level 
and international teams, plus 
a comprehensive manage- 
ment option. 

Sensible have employed a 
football expert who has 
started to collate data 
about the world's major foot- 
ball teams for inclusion In the 
game, which Is due for completion later this year. 

The next game to be released from Sensible Software Is a war-game called Cannon 
Fodder. The game puts you In control of a bunch of 325 civvies who you must build up 
into an army - so it's a bit of a branch-out for Sensible. The characters will be similar In 

appearance to those In Mega-Lo- 

Mania and Sensible Soccer. With 

them you will have to take on 

around 30 different missions 

including blowing up buildings 

and rescuing hostages. 

You will also have to enter bat- 
tle with a number of armies In 
various scenarios, Including jun- 
gle, arctic, desert, moorlands and 
underground. The sound effects 
are incredibly realistic (we know, 
we've heard them), so It looks like 
one to watch out for. Cannon 
Fodder is due for release through 

Virgin Games In September. *• ■"■' Sw.ibU-.lylj .horocler , cm b« s«n in ih.i,

Amiga Format Gold rating in issue 38 - is virtually ready 
for release, so why are MicroProse holding on? "It's 
because we arc wailing for a standard hard-drive version of 
the A 1200 before releasing the game, because it runs from 
hard drive only." 



Since ZCL have now announced new 60 and 80 Mb ver- 
sions of the A1200 (sec Page 12) Civilization should only 
be a matter of months away. For more information contact 
MicroProse on 0666 504326. 

Last, but not of course, least news reaches 
us of what is possibly the first AI200-only 
game. It comes from Vivid Software of 
Bournemouth, who arc currently producing a 
game with the title Mr Gurk and His Amazing 
16 Million-Coloured Quest. Subtlety 

is obviously one 
of Vivid Software's 
stronger points. 

Apparently the 

strangely named Mr 
Gurk of the title has 
had his 16 million 
colours stolen 

by the "console 
scourge', who 
only have 16 
colours and are 
therefore con- 
sumed with envy and are jealous of Mr Gurk's. remarkably 
colourful personality. So he begins a quest to retrieve them. 
Hmmm. sounds, cr. interesting. The Amiga Formal team 
arc on the case and will bring you more information about 
the game as it comes. 




The A 1200 version of 
MkroProse's Civilization Is to be releosed 
os soon as o hard-drive 1 VOO's available.

Soft Logik have wasted no time in addressing some of the 
points raised in our review of their Art Expression structured 
drawing package (AF 44 - 75 per cent), in which we spotted 
a small problem with constructing a line from a series of 
bczier curves (drawing a line through fixed points). 

Version 1. 02 of the program has already been mailed 
out to registered users. This bug fix continues Soft Logik\ 
commitment to free updates for registered users, and il is 
accompanied by a font disk, and an art bonus disk. IltustrotiT

Lemmings take 
over the world 

Lemmings 2 hits the streets the day this magazine goes to press, so if you are expecting a 
full review of what looks set to be one of the biggest games of the year, I'm afraid you'll 
have to wait until next month. You'll see reviews in other mags, but they have reviewed it 
on site. Psygnosis are not releasing copies to journalists until February 24. We know the 
importance of the game, and we're not prepared to give it a score until one of our review 
staff has toiled over It for several sleepless nights. Watch this space (no not this exact 
one you dweeb, we mean somewhere around Page 64 next month). 

Please note, last month we used a picture of a Lemming In our reviews of Art 
Expression and PageSetter 3. This was done by kind permission of Psygnosis, who hold 
copyright on the Lemmings name and image.

Total Carnage, Bally/Midway's excellent 
sequel to Smash TV. Is to be converted to 
the Amiga by Stroud-based International 
Computer Entertainment (ICE). 

The game pits two players against the 
military might ot several Middle-Eastern 
countries, and they must try to destroy vari- 
ous strategic sites. Stuart Bell of ICE told 
Amiga Format "We're only currently in dis- 
cussion with Bally on whether to Include 
Iraqi reterences in the game, which are 
strongly hinted at in the arcade version." 
ICE 0453 756993. 

Muscles and mayhem abound with Total Carnage, 
coming to your Amiga soon courtesy of ICE. 



Mario reaches the Amiga 



1 



Mario, the fat. bald Italian plumber made 
world famous by the console giants 
Nintendo, is shortly to appear In a new 
series ot education software for the Amiga 
from Mindscape. 

Under the edutainment banner (com- 
bining both education and entertainment 
aspects) the first in the series, Mario Is 
Missing, is an arcade game set in 19 coun- 
tries throughout the world. 

Mindscape are extremely pleased with 
the licence and hope that he'll prove as 
popular on Amiga as Nintendo! It's due for 
release in April.

Mario, possibly the most overrated character 
in the world, makes it on to the Amiga.

Role-playing fans are due for a treat soon 
because Mindscape have announced the 
Imminent release of Captive 2. the sequel to 
Tony Crowther s best-selling Captive. 

Mindscape s James Morris expects the 
game to do well because "Tony has devel- 
oped a completely new technology for the 
game, with 4,096 randomly generated cities 
containing over 1,000 buildings each. You 
will be put in control of four droids, with 
which you must attempt to try and release 
the game's prisoners The game is due tor 
release in April, so watch out for a review in 
next month's Amiga Format 

Crowther is bock with the sequel to Captive 1 . The 
oudience waits with baited breath...

USER PROFILE 



What goes on? 

In the first of an occasional series in which 

we take a look at people from different walks of 

life who use their Amiga for professional work, 

we meet an astounding artist from Sheffield... 

Phil Wolstenholme 






70 



o 
o 



IT'S NOT REALLY grim up north, you 
know. It's pretty much the same as down 
south, only it possesses more latitude. But the 
north. Sheffield in fact, is where Phil 
Wolstenholme found himself studying Fine 
An at polytechnic, during the mid-Eighties. 
Specialising in photography. Phil found thai 
creating an image could take many days' work 
in the darkroom. But to create the strange and 
interesting composite images that were his dis- 
tinctive style, the hours had lo he put in to 
each individual print. Until, thai is. he discov- 
ered computer-generated artwork. 

A quick study of what each computer 
offered, and more importantly, what each com. 
saw Phil investing in an Amiga 500 and .1 copy 
of DigiView after leaving college in !9Kfv "I 
didn't have any computer experience until I 
got an Amiga. I just got it out of the box and 
plugged it in." says Phil, disarmingly. 

With money he received from the Prince's 
Trust and an enterprise scheme. Phil set him- 
self up as a computer artist. It's a dream mans 
of us probably share, but it was hard work and 
determination that saw Phil establish himself 
in the field. Because he wanted to work in the 
record industry Phil set about calling e\cr\ 
band and record company he had heard of. 

Eventually The Designers Republic used 
Phil's work on the cover of Pop Will Eat 
Itselfs This is The Hour. This is The Day. This 
is Now album. Phil got more record sleeve 
work, leading to a portfolio that includes cov- 
ers for Cabaret Voltaire. MC Tunes. 80K Stale. 
ZTT. Warp Records, and Slrictl) Rhuhm. 

Working mainly in Imagine and Rent ID. 
Phil's work is mostly 3D ray-traced, although 
he is becoming interested in animation. But 
Phil has become bored with much of the UK 
computer-graphics industry, and is tired ol 
seeing loo many copper lamps and juggling 
girls. "If there's anybody out their doing any- 
thing interesting, anything different, for God's 
sake please get in touch with me!" he pleads. 

Phil is convinced his real future lies in 
California, where the remnants of the Sixties 
hippy ethic has left a computer industry awash 
with creatives and visionaries. "Take Virtual 
Reality, it's being wasted in arcade games. 
Why are people trying to re-create the real 
world inside the computer? It's all for defence 
purposes! We should be trying to program vir- 
tual environments that don't actually exist, we 
should be trying to create virtual surreality." 

If Phil does go to California, and is given 
the budget to do something he finds "interest- 
ing, it will a loss 10 the UK but a gain for the 
computer graphics world. 





Artificial Intelligence, lor Warp Records, features 
some of Phil's other work for the label texture- 
mapped on to the walls. 



More recently Phil hos been doing a lot of anima- 
tion, these temples move in a very interesting 
fashion indeed. 





For his non-commissioned work, Phil prefers to 
create more organic pictures. Some of his most 
spectacular work is for personal projects. 




Portrait of the artist: Phil 
sleeves he has created for 



in his Sheffield garret with some of the record 
artists such as MC Tunes and 808 State. 



Phil is hoping to get an Arts Council grant to pro- 
duce an animation that is "sensuous and 
onic.

the floppy disk: multimedia. 

No one seems to have the vaguest idea of 
what multimedia should be. 

So let's start with the basics. To be 
equipped read) for a foray into multimedia 
your Amiga has to be equipped with a CD- 
ROM drive. 



There's been a lot of talk in Amiga Format 
about CD-ROM technology. Almost every 
month there's a juicy quote from a major 
industry figure or writer that seems lo Suggest 
that CD-ROM is the only way forward. This is 
because it enables you to store massive 
amounts of data (550 Mb on a formatted CD), 
so it makes the lives of software pirates hell 
(the cost of buying a rcad-wTite CD mastering 
system is enough to put most people off. and if 
you try to copy more than 550 Mb of data to 

floppy disks you're 

» CD-ROM is the only way forward, it t^ing abom am 

worth of disks). 

CD-ROM 
also enables high- 
quality sound and 
graphics to be 
stored (8-bit. 24-bit. 
you name it. you 
store it). And as the base requirement for 
multimedia, compact disc storage really does 
have it all. 

So what else do you need. Well, if you lake 
Microsoft's PC-oricnlatcd specifications as a 
starting point, after CD-ROM you need to 
have stereo sound reprodu cti on and recording 
- the Amiga's got that: a Graphical User 
Interlace (GUI), the Amiga's got that in the 




mokes the lives of software pirates 
hell, plus CDs are so much, much 
cheaper than cartridges* 



The A4000 is the perfect tool for multimedia, plus 
you get one hell of a lot of computing power... 

form of Workbench: a 32-bit processor (in the 
case ot the PC. this means a minimum of a 
486), the Amiga has this in the form of the 
AI2(M>andA4000. 

So. multimedia might just look like a 
general description of the Amiga, and there \ 
the point... 

The Amiga was built exactly for multime- 
dia. It has custom chips to take the pressure of 
work from the CPU (Central Processing Unit), 
an easily upgrade-able operating system, stan- 
dard hardware interfaces (though the lack of a 
built-in MIDI interface is a problem, as is the 
recent switch over to PCMCIA). 

So far. the definition of multimedia appears 
synonymous with the description of Amiga. 
However, there are various properties that dis- 
tinguish multimedia use from. say. desktop 



HOW MANY CD-ROMS STYLES ARE THERE? 



THERE'S SUCH A multiplicity of CD formats around 
at the moment, so here's a bit of jargon-busting. As 
with all Industry shorthands, these terms are often 
used without precision. 

All CD format discs look the same (with the 
exception of Sony's Mini Disc: a five-inch disc con- 
taining digital Information that is played back via 
laser optics). Sadly, most of the formats are cur- 
rently incompatible with each other, resulting in a 
fractured and undecided market. However, because 
all information can be held digitally, you can 
access across formats with some disks. 

CDTV-compatlble discs, for example, can read 
text files held In CD-ROM XA format, but you wont 
be able to run PC-specific CD-ROM applications 
using a CDTV. Yet it Is only a combination of 
marketing and research and development costs 
that is holding back multlformat CD-ROM software 
and hardware. One company active in the CDTV 
world have already engineered multiformat discs, 
running graphics files from coexisting CDTV, CD-I 
and MPC formats. 

Here, though, are today's players in the CD- 
ROM platform game: 

CD (Compact Disc): unlike the computer disk 
(which is short for diskette), compact discs are 
'discs'. They are also trademarked to the Dutch- 
based electronic firm Philips. CD is now 
widespread as the premier audio storage medium - 
we've seen them, used them - they also make very 
good beer mats. 

Compatible with: CD+G - similar to audio CD In 
the way that data is stored but with a small graphi- 
cal content only viewable via CD-ROM players. CD 
is also the generic term for the disc itself. In all 
these examples. 



CD-ROM: (Compact Disc Read-Only Media, or. 
Compact Disc Read-Only Memory depending on 
who you believe). CD-ROM is largely a text-based 
storage system which is used for catalogues, 
newspaper back Issues, trade reports and the like. 
Playable only on CD-ROM players. There Is 
an upgrade with limited audio and graphic storage, 
this is called CD-ROM XA - CD-ROM Extended 
Architecture.

If you have on A500 Plus and you want to get into mul- 
timedia, the A570 CD-ROM is the one to go for. 

CDTV: (Commodore Dynamic Total Vision). It now 
seems to be being redefined almost daily by 
Commodore. Standalone or Amiga add-on, it pro- 
vides a low-cost entry into massive storage, fast 
access and combinations of graphics, music and 
text, though It sadly suffers from the market's pre- 
occupation with FSFM video. Still, its clearly the 
precursor to the now-certain CD-ROM-based 
games market, either via a portable Amiga or an 
Amiga-based console. 



Commodore's CDTV Multimedia pack - oil you need for 
most multimedia applications. 

CD-i: The Sony/Philips multimedia (i for Interactive, 
and it is always a lowercase 'I' by the way) exten- 
sion of CD-ROM. Technically superior to CDTV, It's 
driving hard Into the PC world which ignores the 
user-friendliness Amiga users take for granted. Still 
too expensive to force its way Into consumer mar- 
kets. Similar technologies exist with PhotoCD 
(Kodak's digital photography storage system, 
based on CD-ROM) and Video CD which is 
Nimbus's (the UK-based CO manufacturers), 
recently-announced alternative to video tape. 

MPC: Multimedia Personal Computer. An attempt at 
a standard proposed by Microsoft. It centres on a 
CD-ROM drive stereo soundcard (with a PC you 
have to fork out an extra £250 In order to get stereo 
sound), an 80 Mb hard drive, an Intel 486-processor 
and Microsoft's Windows. It's less a standard and 
more of a wish list for a PC configuration.

publishing, database management and the rest. 
Interactivity is the key here: the ability to con- 
trol the two major information providers 
(audio and visual) using a single machine, the 
Amiga, while the process of information pro- 
viding is going on. Boy. that sounds 
pompously technical, but it simply means with 
a multimedia set-up. you don't simply run a 
program from start to finish with maybe a few 
key presses, a mouse-click or joystick waggle 
lo show that you were there. 

True multimedia is open-ended, and much 
like a dictionary or encyclopaedia there is no 
true beginning and no true end; you wouldn't 
sit down and read Chambers 20th Century 
from start to finish would you? You would dip 
into it. and an ideal dictionary or encyclopae- 
dia would enable you to add your own entries. 
Multimedia means that you gel to control the 
way in which the program runs. 

No matter what processor you use. running 
true multimedia applications can be extremely 
memory intensive. Here, the Amiga's true 
multitasking abilities make it the ideal 
machine: just compare your productivity with 
that of the PC owner who has had to upgrade 
to Windows (plus expensive upgrades to 
Windows-compatible software) in order lo 
gain anything close to multitasking abilities. 

Frankly, the PC cannot multitask, its oper- 
ating system and architecture just aren't up to 
it; it can't run one program in one window on- 
screen, and then open another window to run 
.mother program uctuall) running two pro 
grams contiguosuly. ai the same time. 
together. Not even the Mac can really do this. 
The basis for all of this talk of Amigas and 
multimedia of course is the transmission of 
information, or as it's become known, data. 

BLIND DATA 

In itself, data is worthless; it becomes valuable 
only when you place it in context and it 
becomes information. (Arsenal 2 - Bristol 
RoveiS 4 is only relevant as information when 
you a) know this sentence is about football b) 
when you are interested in football or c> when 
you are not interested but know someone who 
is). Research suggests that you remember 20 
per cent of what you see. 20 per cent of what 
you hear. 50 per cent of what you see and hear 
and 75 per cent of what you sec. hear and do. 
So. when you think of the Amiga's ability to 
enable you lo do all three its educational possi- 
bilities are incredible. 

Given that a CD-si/ed disc can contain the 
same data as 640 Amiga 8K0K floppy disks or 
more than 80.000 single-spaced A4 pages, and 
that modern computing enables us to access 
data in a faster more streamlined manner, the 
developer of CD-ROM systems can now build 
more and more complex relationships between 
massive amounts of data. 

Essentially, this means that we can build 

and work with software that enables us lo 

make use of more complex paths through data. 

When travelling data-paths in this way. we are 

more likely lo be able to turn the raw data into 

useful information. 

For example: a simple data-path about a

MULTIMEDIA - DO IT YOURSELF... 



WHAT IS THE use of multimedia to the Amiga user? 
Can you achieve anything here and now? Well yes. but 
you're going to need some software and hardware. 
and more importantly you're going to need an Idea. 
What can you construct an interactive project around? 
Well, what about a TV show? A piece of viciously bit- 
ing, fiction that wipes away the tedious dross you 
have to put up with from the tube most nights? Your 
first job Is to think about the types of Information 
about a hero (or heroine) you'd want to include. Shots 
of the main characters, certainly, plus some music, a 
bit of video, and some scene setting. 

Firstly work out how you're going to create the 
more complex material, such as sound and pictures 
digitally. The music's easy using a program such as 
Octomed. Because music can be sampled (within 
copyright), recreated, remixed or encrypted as MIDI 
files It can be used on the Amiga with Immense ease. 

Text files, again, are easy - word processors are 
10 a penny in the PD world. Maybe invest in a simple 
database to enable you to set up mug shots of all the 
characters. Perhaps the video element is too complex 
or expensive - genlock, digitising, video titling and the 
like - but you could easily import graphics from a 
paint/animation package or make use of digitised pho- 
tographs by using something cheap and cheerful like 
VIVI Complete Colour Solution to create your own lim- 
ited animation. 

Lastly, you need to consider the main character 
pictures - again, these can be digitised or maybe 
you'll even have a go with a graphics package such as 
Deluxe Paint IV for a real artist's impression. 




The VIDI Complete Colour Solution package is ideal f 
beginners to digitise images into their Amigas. 



Keep the options open and think what the end result 
should be, rather than concentrate on the way to get 
there. Only when you're clear about what you want 
multimedia to do for you. should you decide to spend 
money on upgrading your kit and in which direction. 
So, to aid that process, here are some quick tips for 
thinking clearly: 

• Your major constraint Is memory not processor 
speed - get more RAM. 

• Work from a storyboard and flowchart to ensure 
you know the structure of your presentation. 

• Don't get sidetracked by thinking all video Images 
need a genlock - If you can live without overlaying 
Amiga-generated text on to video then save yourself 
some money. 

• Don't be tempted to break copyright - you'll only 
be found out and then there'll be tears. 

• Don't be over-ambitious. It's likely to be Impracti- 
cal to do more than the very simplest of projects if you 
don't have a hard drive - get a hard drive. 

• Although you'll concentrate on those areas where 




With DPaint IV you can draw and manipulate images using 
any Amiga. There's even an AGA version for the Al 2001 

you have most talent or interest, such as music, try to 
put an equivalent effort Into the other parts - your pro- 
ject will be stronger and you'll develop new skills. 

• At the start, get a good relationship with an estab- 
lished PO library for applications, instruments for 
sampling, copyright-free art and much more. There is 
more good material than you could use in a lifetime 
out there - finding it may take time, but think of how 
much money you could save. 

• Look at any example of multimedia you can - how 
does It work? What's wrong with it? How would you 
make it better? Does it break new technical or imagi- 
native ground? What can you learn? 

• The key to all of this is to decide what you want to 
do first and go for It - if you can't afford the obvious 
solution, then think about other ways. 

Multimedia is about options - take them. After all that, 
load up your authoring package and read the manual. 
Ironically, the more time you spend thinking, planning 
and reading before you sit down In front of your 
machine, the better the end result. Of course, getting 
Into multimedia takes time and money. 

Here it's only possible to point you in the right 
directions, if you're a regular reader you have an 
advantage: check your Coverdisks for working ver- 
sions of multimedia software (Octnmcd. CanDo and 
Animation Station for starters) and check the issues 
for full reviews of the packages that can only be 
touched on here. 

If you think this Is all out of your league, then think 
'virtual reality*. You see. there's a school of thought 
that suggests that although virtual reality is an excit- 
ing concept, its doomed to failure as long as it 
remains In the world of vector graphics. What it needs 
is real graphics mixed with audio and textual informa- 
tion, just like reality. And the best bet for delivering 
that in an effective manner lies in CD-ROM based mul- 
timedia. So why not create your own virtual reality!

d) Signed to Atlantic. EMI. Virgin.

As a mass of data this is only of interest in 
passing. Stored on floppy disk, in a traditional 
database, you might be able to cross-rcfcrcncc 
some of the data (record label, manager. 
Johnny Rotten) but the work involved in doing 
so would be more than your lime was worth. 

A multimedia representation of this data 
on the other hand would enable you lo call up 
pictures of all the band members, snatches of 
the music, and cross references al the click ol 
a mouse-button. Unlike a traditional computer 
system, which relies on databasing up simple 
paths, multimedia enables you to construct 
complex routes into other knowledge from 
simple beginnings. Ii makes it all the more 
memorable by backing up the data with pic- 
lures, sound and additional references. In 
short, you are seeing, hearing and. to a limited 
extent experiencing the data. 

What this means is control - control over 
information. There is now so much informa- 
tion hitting you from every direction - TV. 
radio, satellite, on-line databases. Bulletin 
boards and newspapers. With data sources you 
can access yourself you can obtain data when 
you want it, you won't have lo wait for the 
News at Ten or whenever - you're in control. 

Imagine having an encyclopaedia/ 
database/on-line system that can be updated 
regularly with the kind of data \ou want and. 
more importantly, that you need. 

The arguments have been rehearsed often 
enough in these pages, but there is now an

manufacturers - the replacement of the floppy 
disk by CD-ROM. Partly to beat the pirates 
and partly to deliver added value, this year 
you'll see an explosion of original material 
released for the CDTV market. 

Once that establishes a beachhead, watch 
out for serious software manufacturers releas- 
ing on the same format - a package 
comprising six disks with a 2(>0-pagc manual 
will be replaced by a single CDTV disc, con- 
taining the application, the manual, interactive 
help files, plus other material such as clip art 
files, fonts, instruments and the like. Hello 
OpalX'ision CD. Hello Wordworth CD. Hello 
Scala Multimedia 200 CD. 

Where Commodore may have misplayed 
their hand over the last two years though, was 
in the positioning of CDTV. Launched as an 
entertainment-cum-information provider that 
had nothing to do with the Amiga, il was 
clearly ahead of the market - and it was 
clearl) an A5(H> in a black box. without a ke\ 
board or disk drive (and now you get these 
with the CDTV Multimedia pack). The Amiga 
side is beginning to receive a belated accep- 
tance in recent pronouncements from within 
Commodore, who have realised they're the 

only manufacturer 
lo offer both a 
CD-ROM based 
delivery system and 
a (in business terms) 
low-cost computer 
desktop and net- 
working system. 
Commodore are predicting a growth in the 
whole multimedia market of 72 per cent a year 
for the next four years, they have opened up 
the whole market due to their release of stan- 
dalone CD-ROM drives for the Amiga range. 

Once the market wakes up to the fact that 
CDs can be packaged and mastered for about 
£1.50. there's going to be a torrent of the new 
titles (hopefully). As 'Industry' wakes up to 
the possibilities of multimedia and CDTV. 
new opportunities will open up for everybody: 
corporate databases comprising hundreds of 
images or fonts held on CDTV-eompatiblc 
discs will be available to non-corporate 
graphic artists and desktop publishers. Watch 
out for interactive Amiga-based presentations 
in shops as a telling sign of things to come. 

Shop window displays using Amigas and 
back projection will alter the look of the High 
Street. Shop or mail order catalogues will 
arrive in the post as CD-ROMs enabling you 
to view your future purchases on a computer's 
monitor. CD-ROM telephone directories 
linked to modems will give you cheaper, eas- 
ier phone calls - and updating will be far 
easier because the print runs arc cut down sav- 
ing hugely on price. 

Readers expecting a how-to multimedia tuto- 
rial may well be feeling confused by now. 
Why all this talk of business, training and CD- 
ROMs? It's simple really: what happens in 
other spheres of life has a tremendous impact 
on the Amiga world - what business demands 
from its machines, affects everyone, new 
music packages developed for the ST affects 
other formats, and the same is true for new 



desktop publishing software on the Mac: it's 
all one big chain reaction. 

Multimedia is impacting (that's corporate 
waffle for 'is affecting*) all those other areas, 
and opportunities are only going to be made 
the most ol H Amiga programmers arc aware 
of what's happening on other formats. 

If you think that the end result of CDTV 
technology will be being able to load instantly 
a mega remix version of Lemmings with 
CD-quality sound, then frankly you're under- 
estimating the capabilities that multimedia will 
bring. Although the basic technologies have 
been with us for some time, and are widely 
seen as useful and exciting for the future, 
the possibilities available now are also stun- 
ning, but they only make sense if you 
understand where the market is going. Hence 
this overview. 




Is a manic reworking of Lemmings all Multimedia 
has to offer? Read on to find out... 



Raving about the wonders of CDTV titles such 
as A Hun For Barney (79 per cent in Amiga 
Format 39) isn't going to win thousands of 
new followers for CDTV; it's not exactly 
the sort of exciting, new. interactive title 
you've been wailing tor. is it? And. to be 
frank, most of the other software hasn't been 
too dazzling either. 

So. to most people it looks horribly like the 
wider multimedia possibilities are being 
sold short to Amiga/CDTV owners, precisely 
because most Amiga commentators are 
deliberately unaware of what's happening in 
other markets - PCs. Macs, business and the 
real world environment. 

Thai's why Amiga enthusiasts can't under- 
stand why businessmen don't rush out and buy 
Amigas right now - because nobody has put 
the right argument forward for using Amigas 
in industry and commerce. 

At present, the cost of incompatibility with 
PCs (business likes to sec itself as a PC-only 
world, even if many of the PCs are outdated 
within four months of arriving on the desk) 
outweighs the ease of use and productivity 
savings that Amigas offer. Which is why you 
have the crazy sight of PC owners spending 
more than the cost of an Amiga to upgrade a 
PC to the Amiga's multimedia capabilities. 

The world of CD-ROM is one in which the 
Mac has lead, the PC is now leading and the 
Amiga will have lo catch up with, unless 
somebody can break the grip of ancient so- 
called industry standards or unless... well, 
unless the Amiga can create a new market

itself, jus! as Apple did with DTP on the 
Macintosh and NewTck did with video on the 
Amiga/Video Toaster. 

There is such a market for multimedia oul 
there and it's wide open... the musician in his 
(or her) bedroom with their Amiga, cheap 
sampler. PD software and a low-budget key- 
hoard making a dance hit is already a cliche. 
Yet. for a little more outlay than it takes to 
simply output some vinyl, anyone could be 
producing their own multimedia material com- 
bining graphics (anything from PD images to 
video), audio and text, .ill held together by 
something like CanDo ( reviewed on Page 124 
and on the Coverdisk of Amiga Formal 36). 

Throw in a hard disk, some extra memory, 
maybe AMOS (again on an Amiga Format 
Coverdisk. issue 42) which you can use to cre- 
ate your own user interface, tailored to the 
specific program. 

You could also direct your own film on a 
camcorder and digitise it for use within an 
Amiga multimedia package such as

than a hit single - you can make your own per-

Then find your local bureau (look in the

suddenly a self-publisher. 

If you start now. the next generation of

How about giving that hit dance single an 
extra edge by adding a short piece of video

SPACE PROHIBITS MORE than a quick rush around 
the key multimedia software packages - check back 
issues or The Amiga Format Special Complete 
Software Guide for more details. 

Software/hardware falls Into four main areas: mul- 
timedia authoring packages, graphics applications, 
music applications and video applications. In addition, 
you will need to think carefully about your available 
memory - less than 1Mb? Think again! - and you need 
a hard drive. There are no real constraints across the 
Amiga range - except when your multimedia desires 
force you to consider add-on cards, SCSI Interfaces. 
co-processors and the rest. Here, then, are some rec- 
ommended packages: 



The key to multimedia is the authoring package that 
enables you to create the script that will run your mul- 
timedia application. Characterised by ease of use. 
there isn't a great deal to choose between: 
• Scala 500 (Digital Vision) - a kind of hi-res 
video/text system controlling high-quality slideshows 
with good text overlays. 




With an authoring package like Scala you can odd sound and 
Itxf to your pictures, and even produce your own videos! 

• HyperBook (Gold Disk) - a version of Apple 
Computer s HyperCard system that enables you to dis- 
play text and Images with 'hot spot' links (you come 
across the word Guitar and click In on It and you are 
taken to a number of sub-references) between them, 
but offering no support for audio, music or animation. 

• CanDo (Checkmate) - sophisticated sound and 
graphics control but its modular nature means lots 
of practice before you get stunning results that can 
standalone. 

• AmigaVlsion (Commodore) - bundled with the 
high level machines, it offers great flexibility and per- 
formance; perhaps the best place to start. 



Any art package will be of use In preparing multimedia 
presentations, but the possibility of using animation 




also limits the choice. We suggest you think strongly 
about Deluxe Paint IV (Electronic Arts) - for 
sheer power and usefulness (drnwing in HAM mode, 
for example). 

• Disney Animation Studio (Amiga Centre Scotland) 
- Is also a good tool. It has unmatched flexibility and 
performance (plus a keen price) which more than com- 
pensates for the package's slowness. 

MUSIC SOFTWARE 

Here's your chance to go crazy with expensive add- 
ons (MIDI connectors, keyboards and samplers) or to 
exploit cheap PD-land (loads of sounds to manipulate). 
Try the following: 



• KCS Version 3.5 Level II (Dr T's) - probably 
best music package on the Amiga, ft uses the Amiga's 
internal sounds as well as external MIDI instruments, 
and you can sync them all together. 

bbbbbS 




This is on example image from DPoini IV AGA for the 

Al 200 - similor results can be hod from the bosk version. 



Or T's KCS 3.5 is a professional-standard MIDI sequencer, 
but it has a professional price too - around £280. 

• Octamed (Amiganuts United) - S-track tunes are 
no problem with this shareware package that outgrew 
MED (it's still available from PD libraries), Cheap, a 
devil to use, but great software with loads of compati- 
ble PD goodies. 

• Video DCTV (Digital Creation) - an excellent com- 
pressed video display and digitising system giving 
broadcast-quality composite video signals at a non- 
industry price, that includes the ability to view any

In December last year, 'the best value digltlser on the

size of one CD. That's what Altnalhera did, 
and just look at the sales of their very useful, 
but hardly groundbreaking Fred Fish PD disc 
for CDTV. After all. that's just the beginning 
of the possibilities that the storage medium 
makes available. 

If you've never been competent enough lo 
write a demo of the sort that have made coder 
groups famous, there's now an even more 
impressive and advanced technology available 
that will enable you to make multimedia pre- 
sentations more easily. And converging 
technologies means that a vast new market of 
people hungry for CD-ROM product is about 
to open up. Whether they're coming from 
business or graphics, video or music, informa- 
tion or creativity, users can sense that an 
exciting new world is about to unfold. 

Vast quantities of data (information if you 
like), held or converted digitally from other 
sources are suddenly going to be available 
to you. Amiga users have a perfect opportunity 
to re-order some of that data to make a 
real difference. 

The hardest burden the creative person suf- 
fers is the difficulty of getting material 
published or released - if you can do it your- 
self with the help of multimedia, then who 
knows what may happen? Of course, technol- 
ogy is an unpredictable beast and may go off 
in new directions, but even these may provide 
the same opportunities. Cameras that store 
images digitally on discs could become part of 
people's 'everyday technology'. Certainly, 
what will happen is an increasing ability to 
control your environment, entertainment and 
information digitally. 

It's all going to come together at some 
point. It's possible to predict confidently that, 
within the next two years (at the very outside), 
everybody is going to be using CD-ROM tech- 
nology, or have it affect their daily life in 
some way. 

People will be able to sit at their hi-fi sys- 
tems and deliver multi-functional audio 
programming, enabling you to watch picture, 
and sound-perfect, movies stored as CDs. CD 
will also allow you to play games of new 
depth and subtlety, and enable you to distort 
and control digital images (photos, perhaps, or 
music via MIDI files) and this will make you 
hungry for new combinations of digital mate- 
rial - everything from encyclopaedias to 
polemics, entertainment to politics, any of 
which you will be able to retain and reorder 
just as you wish. 

As Amiga users you're perfectly placed to 
capitalise on these possibilities. 

WHO IS USING IT? 

Try this for one of those classical paradoxes... 
because Amiga-based systems are not per- 
ceived as an industry standard, there is a lack 
of enticing stories from users that show how 
dramatic the possibilities are... and because 
there aren't many strong user stories, there's 
an increased perception that the Amiga isn't 
in fact a worthy business machine. Still, here 
are four examples of real-life multimedia. 
Amiga-style. 

Providing quick, accurate information of 




The Amiga is on excel- 
lent business tool, and 
multimedia packages 
Kite Scah is one ol the 
tools wine importers 
Heyman Brothers use 
to get information 
across to clients. 



your product line is the key to marketing sur- 
vival. Specialist wine merchants Heyman 
Brothers exhibit extensively at wine fairs and 
so they needed an accessible way of displaying 
their comprehensive list of wine imports. 

The answer? An Amiga 3000 running a 
multimedia display of scanned wine labels, 
vintage and supplier information, developed 
using Scala and a graphics scanner. It's ideal 

for the browser at a 

* It's possible to confidently predict trade fair. The rest 

of the company's 
finances. DTP and 
stock control sys- 
tems also run on 
Amigas. 

Then there's 
- VISTRAIN - 
which won a 
Europe-wide award 
for the most innovative and cost-effective mul- 
timedia application of training technology. 

It's an interactive crowd-control simula- 
tion, and it uses existing video footage of 
crowds at major events. The Scottish Police 
College uses it to train senior police officers in 
crowd control. At the heart 
of the system is an A3000 
connected to an audio net- 
work for replay purposes. 



that within two years (at the very 
outside) everybody is going to be 
using CD-ROM technology in some 

way in their daily routine ■ 



Just goes to show that 

Amigas con be used for 

almost anything - the 

Scots train their police 

force crowd 

control techniques 

using an A3000! 




plus a network of A2000s. each representing a 
different view of the crowd. It creates exactly 
the same conditions you could expect at a real- 
life police crowd-control centre and. more 
importantly, the simulation is going to 
help save lives. 

Aircraft simulation has long been the point 
at which serious game fanatics and corporate 
accountants meet. The search has long been on 
for a cheap, more reliable alternative to the 
huge mainframe-based flight sims used by big 
companies to train their people. For British 
Aerospace, that search led to the Amiga 2000. 
BA uses more than 80 of them to create an 
electronic classroom in which engineering 
trainees can dismantle and reconstruct a 
Tornado. Interactive by nature, the system 
delivers high-quality graphics with animation, 
digitised sound and text. 

Finally, there's the all-singing, all-dancing 
Medic Media service, delivering closed-circuit 
news and entertainment to over 60 hospitals. 
many of which get personalised service with 
specific announcements and hospital maps. 

Text and graphics (courtesy of Deluxe 
Paint IV) are. of course, courtesy of a whole 
pile of Amigas - centrally controlled from a 
tasty A2000 with a SO Mb drive. 9Mb mem- 
ory. 8Mb of fast RAM. 40MHz accelerator 
card and. just for luck. 32-bit memory. In each 
hospital, an A2000 with 4Mb memory, and a 
40 Mb hard drive, controls a number of remote 
colour monitors. 

On a broader canvas, you can see some seri- 
ously interesting applications that arc pushing 
the general acceptance of multimedia in busi- 
ness. Applications such as the museum guide 
where you can call up video footage of 
works of art walking round and approaching 
them while other Amiga-created windows 
provide information on the artist or pho- 
tographs of other works plus, of course, reams 
of background material, maps of the museum 

and so on. 

Or take training as a 
clear example of business 
needs dictating technologi- 
cal possibilities. Distance 
learning - interactive 
learning using computers 
and video - is currently 
big business. 

Basically, multimedia is 
capable of far more than 
the current success stories 
suggest. The shift in perception and technical 
dedication between the first generation of CD- 
ROM titles, such as the important archive 
microfiche sets of The Times and Sunday 
Times, and the new generation of CD-ROM 
titles such as The Times Network's Changing 
Times - 200 years of history from 7.000 arti- 
cles, thousands of photographs, maps, 
hand-written letters and more - is stunning. 

The word multimedia has been around for 
too long; and though there are some promising 
multimedia packages: everyone is still waiting 
for that gobsmacking piece of software that 
isn't a dictionary or encyclopaedia; something 
that will affect as many of your senses as pos- 
sible. The wait is on... 1? 



Venerable warlord Sun Tzu wrote 



The Ancient Art of War 2,500 years 
ago. Now it provides the theme for a 
thrilling action packed game to test 








your ingenuity and skill in 
equal measures. 



You can choose historical 



characters and match wits with them 



Take on enemy bombers and air aces 
in dogfights. Even change the very 
course of history. And enjoy more 
entertainment than you would 
think possible! 



Let your imagination decide the 
tactics and strategy. The Ancient Art 
of War in the Skies is combat with a 



sense of fun. Don't miss it!

PCMCIA 







Can PCMCIA cards say more about you 
Amiga 600 and 1 200 than disks ever could 

Richard Baguely examines th 
virtues of the new, sleek peripheral... 




COl/LD PCMCIA CARDS be the next great 
leap forward in connecting peripherals to your 
Amiga? Well, there arc plenty of good reasons 
wh> they could be just that. They are compact. 
easy to use and can be swapped without hav- 
ing to reboot the machine. And given the card 
and the right driver software, you could con- 
nect anything from extra memory to massive 
hard drives to the slot. 

The PCMCIA standard is not dependant on 
the machine, so in theory you could use these 
devices on different types of computer. Slots 
are now beginning to appear on portable PCs. 
and Amstrad's latest notebook portable has 
two slots, so you could also use a card for 
exchanging files between machines. 

Well, that's the theory. At the moment, the 
only cards readily available for the Amiga are 
memory and pseudo disk. Numerous compa- 
nies arc promising cards ranging from SCSI 
interfaces to fax/modems, and some arc near- 
ing completion (see 'Coming soon to a slot 
near you '). However, it's going to be a few 
months yet before PCMCIA really takes off. 

While many of the peripherals will be 
aimed at PC users, with the growing number 
of A600 and A 1200 users with the slot, the 
developers should BUM Writing suitable 
drivers. A quick note of caution though: 
because the standard is still relatively new. 
there's no guarantee that all cards will work 
with the Amiga. If you're thinking of getting 




A fistful of dollars is 

oil very well, but 

o fistful of PCMCIA 

cords could be far 

more useful for you 

and your Amiga- 



one, make sure you check with the manufac- 
turer or retailer that it's been tested with your 
machine before you buy. 

There are now two types of card available: fast 
memory and Static RAM (SRAM). The former 
acts as part of the Amiga's fast memory, and 
can be used by programs the same as any other 
type of memory. Just plug it into the PCMCIA 
slot when the Amiga is switched off, and turn 
on. It can't be removed while the computer is 
on. but otherwise, you can just forget it's there. 
These are available in sizes up to 4Mb. 



JARGON BUSTING 

PCMCIA: Personal Computer Memory Card Internat- 
ional Association. An organisation that was founded in 
1989 to define standards for use in memory cards. All 
of the main electrical manufacturers are members of 
the PCMCIA. 

The standard that the PCMCIA defined covers aN 
aspects of the electrical connections of the card, the 
file formats of data held In the card and the way in 
which the computer talks to the card. The current ver- 
sion of the standard Is 2.0. 

DRAM: Dynamic Random Access Memory. A type of 
memory which requires refresh signals at regular inter- 
vals, supplied by additional circuitry. 



SRAM: Static Random Access Memory. A type of mem- 
ory which does not require the refresh signals 
associated with DRAM. However. It is slower to access 
than DRAM. The contents of this type of memory can 
be retained by fitting a small battery. 

Pseudo-SRAM: Pseudo Static Random Access 
Memory. This is DRAM with the refresh circuitry built 
In, which can be treated as If It were SRAM. 

JEIDA: Japan Electronics Industry Development 
Association. Earlier version of PCMCIA. If a card is com- 
patible with JEIDA 4.01 standard and it's an appropriate 
type, it can be used in an Amiga PCMCIA slot 



The RAM disk cards contain battery- 
backed Static-RAM memory, and can be used 
as either system memory or pseudo disks. 
Before use they must be prepared and format- 
ted, using the PrepCard program in the Tools 
drawer of Workbench 2 and 3. The maximum 
size for this type of card is. at present. 4Mb, 
although Mitsubishi are predicting disks with 
over 10 Mb by the end of next year. For the 
moment, these cards are extremely expensive 
compared to floppy or hard disks, but they 
could be useful for larger files, and prices will 
fall dramatically as manufacturing costs drop. 

Other types of cards (Electrical Erasable 
Programmable Read Only Memory. FLASH 
and One Time Programmable) are available, 
but these cannot (at present I be used on the 
Amiga, since it only supports the SRAM and 
DRAM types. 

So how do you use these cards? If you're 
using the pseudo-SRAM cards (supplied by 
ZCL - 4Mb for £199. or Silica - 4Mb for 
£179.99). all you have to do is stick them in 
the slot and turn the machine on. This is 
because they arc auto-configuring, which 
means that they automatically fit themselves 
into the Amiga's fast memory 

For the SRAM type (supplied by ZCL - 
1Mb for £179.99. or Phoenix - 4Mb for 



PCMCIA 





£199.99). a small amouni of preparation is 
necessary, using the program PrepCard in ihc 
Tools drawer of Workbench 2 or 3. Launch ihc 
program and then insert the card and some 
information about the size and type of the card 
should appear. From the PrepCard program. 
it's possible to set up the card as either a 
pscudo disk or fast memory. 

If you set up a card as a disk, once pre- 
pared it can be used as any other disk device. 



CARE FOR YOUR CARD 

Although PCMCIA cards are pretty tough, they do have to be 
treated with a degree of respect. Uke all electrical equipment, 
they're sensitive to excess static, moisture and shocks. So don't 
drop, bend, wash or rub the cat down with them. Inserting the 
card Into the slot is sometimes a bit difficult, since the slot can 
be stiff it It's not been used much before. Don't force the card In! 
A gentle side to side wiggling motion often helps, and the 
slot gets looser with repeated insertion and removal. There's no 
way of checking if the card has been completely Inserted, and it 
only goes approximately two thirds of an inch into the slot.

A PCMCIA card in 
action. It's been con- 
figured as a disk, and 
as you can see, It con 
be treated like any 
other device. 



It can be taken out. reinserted or transferred to 
another machine. PrepCard sets Ihc device 
name to CCO: and the disk name to Empty, but 
it can be renamed or rc-formatted in the same 
way as a floppy disk. It acts just like a large 
floppy, although it's somewhat faster. A quick 
check with Sysinfo reveals that data can be 
read from and written to the card faster than 
2Mb per second, compared to less than 100K 
per second for floppy disks. 

Another great advantage about PCMCIA is 
that you can even boot from one of these cards. 
Use PrepCard to set it as a pscudo disk, install 
Workbench on it and copy over the relevant 
files. Reboot, and hey presto, one Amiga with 
an incredibly fast system disk and a free floppy 
drive. This is a rather expensive way of doing 
this at the moment compared to buying a hard 
disk, but as the prices of these cards fall and 
the sizes grow, this could shortly become a 
realistic option. 

Setting up the card as fast memory is also 
pretty simple, but you do need to reboot the 
machine. Just click on (he appropriate button 
in PrepCard. and the screen should change to

reflect the status of the card. Exit the program 
and reboot the machine, and the amount of 
free memory should have increased b\ how- 
ever many megabytes are on the card. Given 
that the card is now part of the Amiga's mem- 
ory, it shouldn't be removed, and doing so 
causes the machine to reboot, consigning 
everything you've been working on to the 
great trashcan in the sky. 

At the moment, using one of these cards is 
not a realistic option, except for a few spe- 
cialised applications. The price of the cards is 
in no way competitive compared to other 
media, and the presence of only one slot could 
be a problem. However, the price of the cards 
is tailing fast, and they are getting bigger and 
faster. It's a technology that's still in its 
infancy, and the future looks bright. 

Remember all of that hassle with peripher- 
als which wouldn't work on the A500 Plus 
or the A600? If the PCMCIA standard takes 
off. all that could be a thing of (he past, and 
all the signs are that it is on its way to becom- 
ing established. Most new PC laptops have a 
slot and many developers are now working on 
either creating new PCMCIA products or 
adapting existing peripherals. 

It's .i similar situation to when tin- mcnion 
expansions for the A500 were in their infancy. 
In the beginning the 512K expansion cost 
approximately £125. Now, you can pick one 
up for about £25 and £125 should get you a 
couple of megs. 

All the signs are that PCMCIA cards will 
probably go the same way. They're not likely 
to replace floppy disks, but it'll soon become 
Ihc best way to add memory or peripherals to 
your Amiga. *2> 



COMING SOON TO 
A SLOT NEAR YOU 

Many companies are working on cards, 
and there's a general feeling that It's a 
good standard which will become 
widespread. Mitsubishi currently have a 
fax/modem card In preparation which 
will offer V22bis speed and V42bls data 
compression. Fax send and receive 
capability is also built In. 

Drivers for the Amiga are being pre- 
pared for this card, so it should work 
with programs like GPFax and NComm, 
ZCL also have a number of cards on the 
way, Including Ethernet network 
adapters and SCSI-2 Interfaces. They 
are also working on an expansion card 
to enable more than one PCMCIA card 
to be plugged in at the same time.

GAME REVIEWS 



JUST WHAT DOES MAKE 
SCREENPLAY SO SPECIAL? 

The Amiga scene is looking healthier than ever. 
Commodore have announced that sales of the 
A 1200 have reached 44,000, and more and more 
software companies are promising games to 
support it while the A600 is still riding high 
with some stupendous titles. 

So what part does Amiga Format play In 
this maelstrom of activity? For three years run- 
ning, we have been voted the magazine to 
listen to by software shops all around the coun- 
try. That means our opinions are trusted by the 
people who sell you your Amiga games, so you 
know that they will stock up on the best titles. 

Also, the Amiga Format reviews are written 
by the most experienced Amiga gamers you're 
likely to find anywhere - so you can be sure that 
when you read one of our reviews, you're read- 
ing the most authoritative opinion there ft. 

We know that £25 is a lot to pay for a 
game, and we're here to make sure that you 
don't waste your money. If we achieve that our 
job is done. Our rules are simple: 

(1) If it's not finished, it doesn't get reviewed 

(2) M It's crap, we say it's crap - and it doesn't 
matter what the softies think of us 

(3) If we're forced to take sides, it's always 
your side we take 

So, read on carefully, and prepare to be 
informed... 



THE REVIEW CREW 

MAFF EVANS 

"I've been burning the midnight oil with 
Flashback. If $ as fierce as Reservoir Dogs, as 
addictive as cheesy Wotsits, and it's far more 
interesting than I'll ever be." Very modest Maff. 

JAMES LEACH 

"The Chaos Engine. I bought it last week thinking 
it was something to do with chaos theory, and it 
was going to give me loads of pretty Mandelbrot 
sets. I was gutted." 

ANDY NUTTALL 

"With fear of becoming boring, I'm going to have 
to say Sensible Soccer again. It's a close thing this 
month, though, with Flashback and The Chaos 
Engine tying for second place." 

PAUL TYRRELL 

"Abandoned Places 2 is the game for me at the 
mo. It rivals E0TB2 in its payability and atmo- 
sphere, but it won't let you throw things - and I 
like throwing things..." 

SARAH TANSER 

"For most of the last month I've been in univer- 
sity trying to run an Artificial Intelligence 
program, but in my spare time it's been The 
Chaos Engine all the way." 

ED RICKETTS 

"Legends of Valour, because if s just like real-life. 
You get to wander around all day and night- 
doing bugger all, and not getting paid very 
much." (A touch of cynicism there, Ed? - Ed.) 

RICHARD BAGULEY 

"I've been trundling locomotives around on A- 
Train, mainly because my editor told me tol 
Apart from that Ragnarok's been taking up a lot 
of my time." 

CHRIS BUXTON 

"I'm hooked on this really abysmal game called 
International Cricket by some Australian com- 
pany. It helps me to forget our appalling test 
performance." Very topical there, Chris. 




England's cricket team are brilliant, unemployment is falling 

by the day, and the Mega Drive is great... April Fool! We had 

you going there for a while, didn't we? Andy Nuttall is 

here to take you on a tour of the current releases... 



SO WHAT'S IN STORE THIS MONTH. THEN? 

Get yourself connected 

Is it possible to play a game against a Texan 
while he's still in Texas, and you're still in 
your front room in Walthamstow? Yes it cer- 
tainly is! It's incredible, and Amiga Format can 
tell you all you ever need to know about how 
to play on-line games. Plus, find out how you 
can play three of these intercontinental games 
for free for a whole week! Page 47 





Flashback 

Delphine Software, the French software house 
responsible for such classics as Another World and 
Cruise for a Corpse, are back with a vengeance. 
Their new game has a similar style to Another 
World, but features even better animation, and is 
much, much bigger. Find out more about our 
game of the month on... Page 54 



ssr Via 



The Chaos Engine 

One of the most long-awaited games in the his- 
tory of the Universe is finally here. You may have 
seen reviews of The Chaos Engine in other maga- 
zines, but ours is the first review of the finished 
game - guaranteed! And boy, are we glad we 
waited - it's a stormer! Shoot-em-up fans turn to 
this page now... Page 58

Lionheart 



Thalion, the German software firm responsible for 
No Second Priie and Amberstar, have turned their 
attentions to the platform genre with this ven- 
ture into fantasy territory. Lionheart is a vast 
scrolling beat-em-up with stunning graphics, but 
to find out more about the game you'll need to 
turn to... 



Abandoned Places 2 

Westwood Associates proved themselves to be 
the king of the Amiga RPG scene with their Eye of 
the Beholder games. Now ICE are attempting to 
steal the crown with their sequel to the excellent 
Abandoned Places. They claim to have improved 
the graphics, while retaining the solid gameplay - 
but have they? See for yourself on... Page 84

ON-LINE GAMES 



To pity «n on-line 

you nood It your Amlg*. j 

modem, a telephone line and 

the software. When you're 

playing ji game like Air 

Wtfriot. you're competing 

with a multitude of Amiga 

gameplayers from 

around the world! 



Who says that game- 
playing is purely a 
solitary occupation? 
Richard Baguley 

gets connected with 
some fellow on-liners 




Have you ever craved for communal 
monster-mashing sessions, mass mid- 
air battles or intergalactic wheeling 
and dealing? Well if you have, then on-line 
games could be the thing to add a whole new 
dimension to your gumcplaying. Instead of just 
playing computer-controlled opponents, or a 
friend via a null-modem link (see the feature 
about multi-player games in AFAO), it's possi- 
ble to join in with whole groups of people. 

It really is a step beyond usual computer 
gameplaying: it's much more like a family 
game of Monopoly, with a large number of 
players, a banker thai doesn't cheat and the 
chance lo chop up your grandma. 

On-line games work by using a modem 
(modulator-demodulator). This takes the digi- 
tal signals from the Amiga's serial port and 
converts them into .1 horrible squeaky noise 



I JUST WANNA DIAL 'N' GO 




which can be sent down the telephone line. It 
can also convert the signals sent by the modem 
on the other end of the telephone line back into 
digital information, which the computer reads 
from the serial port. To play the game, you 
link into a central computer, which does most 
of the work of running the game. Most of these 
games are text based, with the notable excep- 
tion of Air Warrior, which is much like a 
normal flight simulator. 

Opponent after opponent 

Playing an on-line game is quite similar to 
playing a game via a null-modem link, except 
there's more than one other player, and they're 
not sat down next to you. This doesn't mean 
you can't communicate with them, though. 
Most of the games have a 'room* which is a 
meeting place, where players slouch around 



line! 



drinking beer ('virtually* of course), exchang- 
ing hints and tips and making (he place look 
untidy. Many also have a noticeboard. where 
players can post notes with problems or com- 
menis. and more experienced players can 'help 
Some of them, like Air Warrior and Discworld 
enable you to chat to other players in real time, 
while you're being shot down or chopped up. 

Of course, there is the phone bill to bear 
in mind. It's very easy to get carried away and 
forget that you've been playing for several 
hours, leading to a huge telephone bill. Call 
off-peak and make sure that you're using the 
cheapest route. 

Main oi the commercial services will 
allow access via Dialplus. This is a service 
where you call a local number and you arc 
connected over a data network to the service

Before you start playing on-line games, you'll need several things: 

1. An Amiga. 

2. A modem. 

3. A telephone line. 

4. Software. 

The first should be no problem for most readers. For the second, more or less 
any modem should be suitable, but to get maximum performance it should 
be capable of sending data at 2,400 bits per second (V22 in comms speak). 
Connecting the second to the third should achieve the required effect 
and launching the fourth will complete the picture. To play the games any PD 
comms package (such as NComm or Terminus) should be sufficient since they 
are purely text based. For Air Warrior, you will need special software sup- 
plied by On Line. This can also be downloaded (transferred to your Amiga via 
the phone line) from On-Line computer system, or from the AF32 Coverdisk.

ON-LINE GAMES 







Now that you've read all 

about these wonderful 

games, you'll want to try 

them, right? Well, here's 

an opportunity to try 

three of the best for a 

whole week for free! 



ON-LINE OFFER - PLAY THREE GAMES FOR NOTHING FOR A WHOLE WEEK! 




^ 






The incredibly generous On-Line Entertainment com- 
pany, alongside Amiga Format are offering you the 
marvellous opportunity to try out all three games 
reviewed here (Air Warrior, Federation and Multi 
User Dungeon 2) free for a whole week! Simply call 
On-Une Entertainment between March 29 and April 
4, and you will not be charged a penny) 

To take up this offer, all you have to do is dial 
081-539 6763 (via your modem) during the above 
dates and set up a new account on the system. You 
can then play Air Warrior, Federation or Multi User 
Dungeon 2 over this period as much as you like with- 
out having to worry about the charges (with the 
exception of the phone bill, of course). 

If you want to try Air Warrior, you'll need to 
download the software or get hold of the Coverdisk 

from AF32. 



To download the software, connect to the on-line 
system and choose 'G' (for games) from the main 
menu , followed by 'A' for Air Warrior, 'D' (for down- 
loads) and 'D' again to download the program, which 
is called AIRAMI.ZIP. This file is compressed using the 
PKZip method, so you may also need the PKAZIP101 
program to decompress it. Decompress this software, 
and the sky's the limit! 

Another new addition is a multimedia frontend 
for Federation. This can also be downloaded from on- 
line, from the 'F' for Federation area, and the 
required files are called MMTRM11.LHA. REQUB.lha. 
MMOD.LHA and SOUNDS. LHA. These are compressed 
using the LHA method, which requires the program 
called LHA to decompress. This can be obtained from 
many Bulletin boards, or from the Coverdisk of 
Amiga Shopper issue 23.

This is a text-based trading game. The basic 
idea is lo cruise your way through the universe 
buying and selling goods, beaiing-up poor 
helpless aliens and amassing a small fortune in 
Galactic Groats. 

You start out as a lowly Earth dweller, and 
after purchasing a small spaceship you start 
ferrying goods from planet -to-p I anet for other 
people. Once you've generated some dosh. it's 
lime to start buying and selling. 

When you're extremely rich, it's on lo set- 
ling up your own company and eventually 
running your own planet. Although it's text 
based, there is a new program available from 



Air Warrior 

ON-UNE SERVICES 

081-539 6763 (MODEM) 
081-558 611 A (VOICE) 

Recreate great air battles in this multi-user 
flight sim. Flying a selection of World War I, II 
and modem planes, pilots fight to the death in a 
variety of scenarios. The graphics are simplistic 
but the detail and resolution can be altered to 
suit the speed of your Amiga. 

The business of flying is relatively easy - 
and it feels like a real plane! Apparently, the 
equations used to determine the behaviour of 
the planes originate somewhere in the depths 
of the Pentagon. A good selection of vehicles is 
available: from Sopwith Camels to F15s, plus 
several ground-based tanks and jeeps. Also 
available are large bombers, these need a crew 
of three or more: pilot gunner and bombardier. 

Playing requires the special software which 
can be obtained from the On-Line Bulletin board 
(081-539 6763), or from AF12 Coverdisk. Once 
you've got the software, run it and select 
'Choose Terminal Mode' from the control menu. 
This will drop you into a comms screen. Select 
'Dial' from the setup menu to connect to the On- 
line system. Once connected, log on to the 
system with the name 'online'. 

The system will then ask for your nickname 
and password. If you've not logged on before, 
give the name 'New'. You will then be 
prompted for your details. Once logged on, you 
start Air Warrior from the main menu by select- 
ing options G' (Games), 'A' {Air Warrior) and 'A' 
(Air Warrior) again. Shortly you will be told you 
are in the briefing room. To get airborne, select 
'Choose Airfield' from the Commands menu.

Speed - in most of the 
propeller driven 
planes, the stall speed 
is around 75mph. 



and choose number 1. Select the plane you 
require (try a P51D Mustang), choose 'Fly* from 
the Commands menu, and you'll be in your cho- 
sen plane. Press '8' and it starts the engine, 
'Shift ♦ C is maximum thrust press this and 
you'll start moving down the runway. Once you 
reach 75 knots, pull back on the stick or move 
the mouse backwards. You should be airborne! 

If you're playing at a busy time, don't be 
surprised rf someone sneaks up and shoots you 
down. After all, that's what it's all about 
According to Lone Wolf (a long-time user), a 



new pilot can expect to be shot down around 20 
times before achieving his first kill. Experienced 
users are helpful if asked, but don't expect any 
mercy rf you're flying for another country. 

It's also possible to play Air Warrior without 
being connected to On-Une. When you launch 
the software, it will default to practice mode, 
just select the plane you want and you'll be 
deposited in the cockpit There won't be any 
other pilots and you can't fire, but you will be 
able to practice manoeuvres, so you can impress 
everyone with your Immelman and Split S turns.

women were women and ores were just down- 
right nasty, many adventurers (ravelled the 
land seeking their fortune. 

In this game, you can roam the world 
meeting interesting people and healing them 
up. All players start off m an Edwardian 
tearoom, which also acts as a meeting place 
for players: where old hunds pass on the fruits 
of their wisdom to newcomers. If you meel 
them outside this room, then do he polite. 
Displays of impoliteness will be dealt with 
severely - in other words you will be chopped 
up and fed piece-by -piece to the goldfish 
Hrom the comparative safely ol the tearoom 
you slep out into a strange world containing all 
manner o! strange and curious beasts, not lo 
in- niion the other players.

The Spitfire pilot has spotted the Focke-Wolf and challenges the pilot to a

The Focke-Wolf pilot has insulted the honour of the RAF. He will pay the terri-

The games mtnu from the Metnet Bulletin board system. Spece Invaders on the left is animated, and if you take a long time 
to choose, the invaders win.

Oh dear. I appear to have been killed by the weediest monster in the 
game. How embarrassing. 

Continued from Pago 47 

for an hourly foe. You will find this works oui 
quite a lot cheaper than calling long distance, 
but u does need to be set up by the service lhai 
you're calling first 

Contact the service operators lo check if 
they offer this service. If you're dialling into a 
commercial service, don't forget about the 
charges that the company running the system 
will add. Believe me. it's easy lo run up a huge 
account without realising until you receive lhat 
expensive bill at ihe end of the month. 

There are many places where you can find 
these games. Many sites on the Internet <a vast 
network of interlinked computers, mainly used 
for academic purposes) run games, many 
Bulletin boards run these games alongside 



their E-Mail services, and some companies run 
these games on a commercial basis. 

Starting with the cheapest, many amateur 
Bulletin board systems run a variety of games. 
These are easy to access, because they arc run 
by people as a hobby and they don't usually 
charge for access, so they're pretty easy to get 
the hang of. The games they run arc usually 
text based, but this doesn't mean they arc sim- 
ple. Many of them arc highly complex and 
involve large numbers of players. Games can 
last months or years, and countless players call 
several times a day. 

Go global 

The games run on Internet systems and they 
can be accessed from virtually anywhere, so 
it's not unusual to find yourself 'chatting' to 
one guy from Texas and someone else from 
Singapore. You can get access to sites on the 
internet cither via CIX (a commercial mail ser- 
vice: 081-390 8446) or via Demon Internet 
Services (a commercial system giving access 
lo the Internet telephone: 081-343 3881). 

One of the main commercial providers 
arc On- Line entertainment, based in cast 
London. They run several games, including 
Air Warrior (a multi-player flight simulator). 
Federation (Interstellar trading) and MUD II 
(dungeon adventures). 

A new game called internecine (political 
intrigue) has recently been added, and is cur- 
rently undergoing testing. Not only arc the 
games run on this system, but there arc also 
areas where you can discuss your latest kill, 
plan campaigns or just chat. If you want to try 
it out for free, sec 'Get on line for FREE' on 
Paees 48 and 49. 



Ool -799 +<m (MOOEM) 

Conquer the world tin a purely virtual sense) 
and wreak war on your opponents. You are in 
charge of a country with finite resources and 
manpower, and you control exactly how these 
resources are used. 

Conquest is the name of the game, so 
attacking your opponents with a terrorising 
onslaught is your mission. Now. should I buy 
that extra lank battalion or feed the masses'.' 
Oh. why not. I'll go for Ihe tanks. Hey. why 
arc the proletariat revolting? 

Hack 'IT Slash 
Yuppie Wars 
and others 



0482 442251 (AAOOfcJVl) 

Mclnet is an extremely colourful system, and 
these programs are certainly no exception. 
Hack 'N' Slash is a huge multi-user dungeon, 
filled with colourful ANSI graphic screens and 
hideous monsters. 

Gladiatorial battles, dark, dank dungeons 
and jousting. Highly recommended Practically 
every screen has some sort of animation, or 
ANSI graphics. It's a very big game, where 
you can choose a great variety of areas, rang- 
ing from fights with Ores and Kobolds in the 
arena lo gang wars and bounty hunting. 

Yuppie Wars places you in the world of 
yuppicdom seeking fame and fortune. Visit 
Wall Street and buy. buy. buy or go shopping 
for the latest in fashion accessories, the Uzi 
9mm machine-gun. Mclnet also runs several 
other games, and the whole Bulletin board is 
filled with ANSI animations.

CIX -081 390 1 255 (MODCM) 
081 390 8446(VO*CE) 
Based on Pratchctt's series of Discworld nov- 
els, this game gives you the chance lo wander 
the streets of Ankh-Morpuk and drink 
Morpukian Beer with Black the Wizard and 
Spanish the Warrior. 

As usual, the more experienced players 
are helpful, as long as you don't mind being 
hacked to bits afterwards. Although I've never 
read much Pratchett. I'm reliably informed 
most of the Dist world is here, and man) ol the 
characters can be found wandering around. 
The game can be run from the main CIX 
prompt by typing "run Discworld'.

This is where the adventurers tell dirty jokes, drink beer and swap stories. 








It's a flying experience 
you'll never forget 

In the Spring of 1942 the United States 8th Air 
Force landed in Britain. Its task to mount the 
aerial offensive in German occupied Europe. 
Striking in the daylight, from high attitude, at 
precise, strategic targets. The heavy bomber 
chosen to perform this task was the 
B-17. The Flying Fortress. 

Now MicroProse brings you the simulation of 

the legendary aircraft. Bristling with defensive 

armaments and a crew of ten, your B-17 will 

penetrate deep into Europe, flying in Group 

formation escorted by P-47 Thunderbolt 

single-seater fighters. Ploughing through lethal 

flak, taking on the might of the Luftwaffe, 

staying in bomb run formation to deliver ten 

5001b bombs on target. 





Fly 25 combat missions to historically accurate 

locations. Perform take offs and landings using 

highly detailed, fully functioning cockpit 

controls. As commander you must take 

responsibility for your crew. Assess their 

strengths and skills, and be ready to take over 

as bombardier, navigator, radio operator, 

engineer, co-pilot or gunner. 

MicroProse B-17 Flying Fortress. It's a flying 
experience you'll never forget.

GAME REVIEW

o 

UJ 



Attached from both 
sides! When my mum 
said that a university 
degree in biochem- 
istry would take 
me places, I don't 
think this was 
exactly where she 
had in mind. 



Delphine's last cinematic release, 
Another World, just fell shy of a 
Format Gold, but the latest fluidly 
animated release has the looks, the 
feel AND the challenging gameplay. 



When a game is hyped because of iis 
presentation and graphical style, 
inert is often something lacking in 
gameplay. Delphine's Another World (-4F31 - 
82 per cent ) looked wonderful, sounded superb 
and had bags ol atmosphere, but lacked a chal- 
lenge. It Wtt great while it lasted, but that was 
onl\ two days! What's needed is more brain 
taxing, trigger pumping, ledge hopping and 
baddie dodging to keep the adventure going 
lor longer. Can Flashback add this to the slick - 
ik-ss of Another WorLt? We take a trip into a 
world of strange aliens and molecular experi- 
ments to find out... 

They live 

lis 2142 AD and a \ounc scientist. Conrad B 
Han. has been working on a machine thai can 
analyse the molecular structure ol living 
beings. Unfortunately, the machine's first pub- 
lic lesi has unearthed a disturbing fact... 

Heads of universities and government rep- 
resentatives are watching as Conrad straps on 
ihe machine's headset and makes his opening 
Statements to the audience: a strange sight 
meets his eves. The molecular analyser shows 
the VIPs are in fact shape-shifting alien inter- 
lopers known as Morphs. who have taken on a 
human form to infiltrate Earth's society. 

Conrad makes his escape, but guards are 
sent after him to take him to the aliens' planet. 
Once there. Conrad's memory is wiped, but he 
manages a get away on a hover-bike, chased 
by the heavily armed Morph guards. A quick 
shoot-out later. Conrad plunges to the ground. 
losing consciousness in the dense foliage of 
the jungle above the city of New Washington. 

This is where vou come in. You take con- 
irol of Conrad as he tries to regain his memory 





This is supposed to be 
family television 
entertainment. Why 
have these two quiz- 
show contestants got 
large handguns? 
Obviously the game 
shows of the future 
have gone beyond 
Ce/ebn'ry Squares. 



and return to Earth to warn the populace of the 
threat posed by the Morphs. You awake in the 
jungle, with just a holographic recording of 
yourself to remember your name, a blank 
credit chip and a self-loading automatic pistol. 

You have to wade through seven danger- 
filled levels before you can get back to Earth. 
On the way you must run. jump, climb and 
shoot your way around the levels, solving 
puzzles and picking up useful items. To begin 
with, you have no memory of who or where 
you are - the only information you are given is 
a cryptic message to meet someone called Ian 
in New Washington. 

Then you have to make your way through 
the jungle to reach the city, and contact Ian 
before your quest stands any chance of suc- 
cess. Unfortunately, it's not just the Morph 
agents in the city that you'll have to watch out 
for. Things get hairy long before that. 



The jungle is infested with old and dan- 
gerous machinery left behind by previous 
civilisations. The chemicals and radiation thai 
these machines leak have given birth to 
mutants who roam the jungle and arc armed 
with stolen laser cannons. The mutants are 
intent on survival, so they shoot on sight, and 
the defence droids used in the past are still 
buzzing back and forth across the leafy ledges 
- so be ready with that gun! 

Saviour of the universe 

On the way through levels, you will have to 
work oui a number of puzzles, including how 
to trip switches, disable security devices, make 
your way through seemingly impassable barri- 
ers and make enough money for a trip home. 
Things get even more treacherous as you go 
on. taking you through some seriously cyber- 
punk-looking scenery and hi-tech defence 




RHYTHM IS A SPRITE CALLED CONRAD 



Conrad has a wide 
range of moves avail- 
able, which are 
stunningly realistic. 
Here are a few of the 
slick sprite animations 
that will help you: 





Gaps in the 
scenery? No 
problem at 
all mate- 
Conrad can 
just take a 
death-defy- 
ing leap 
across to 
safety. 




Conrad Is 
one of those 
healthy, ath- 
letic types, 
so climbing 
up and down 
from plat- 
forms poses 
very few 
problems. 



If 

does look 
slightly sus- 
pect, Conrad 
can pull out 
his powerful 
shooter to 
blast anyone 
who gets in 
his way. 





A good way 
of getting 
across plat* 
forms while 
avoiding 
enemies Is 
to duck 
down and 
roll past any 
danger. 



Before leap- 
ing into 
dangerous 
chasms. It 
makes sense 
to hang off 
the edge of 
a ledge to 
see what's 
below. 



GAME REVIEW 





The Morphs are hot on Conrad's tall, and it's probably not about that out- 
of-dat* parking ticket from outside Sainsbury's. 



Red raincoats are no match for my pistol, no matter how swanky and Blade ffunner-ish you look | 
Oh... but those big guns «r« a different story. Time I was going. Cheerio' 



s\sU'inv Solve ihc pu/./lcs and •'las sharp 
otherwise the Morphs will lake over... 

The first thing that strikes you is the sheer 
quality of the graphics. The game starts with 
an animation of Conrad's escape from his cap- 
tives, followed by a chase as Conrad flees to 
the jungle on a stolen hoverbike. 

The graphical excellence doesn't stop at 
neat intermission sections - the game looks 
even bit as good as the intro. Trie animation 
as Conrad athletically makes his way through 
the levels is about the best and smoothest yet 
on the Amiga, and all the other characters 
move in as impressive a manner. The back- 
grounds are detailed, with loads of texture and 
atmosphere to keep the sirong. futuristic feci 
of the game going. There are even some ani- 
mated pieces lucked away in the backdrops, 
which stops them from looking static - they 
really come alive in some sections. 

Extreme close-up 

Another nice graphical touch is every time 
Conrad docs something which moves him a 
step towards completing his quest, a special 
'zoom-mode' animation is displayed to show a 
close-up view. The sound effects and music 
are damn good, varying from fast-paced action 
tracks to sombre Terminate/ -style pieces and 
subtle background sounds. 

Anyway, enough of the audio visuals. 
what of the gameplay? Fortunately, Flashback 
brims with payability. Conrad not only moves 
well on screen, he's also very responsive, 
which makes it easy to perform any gymnastic 
gyrations: run along a ledge, jump into a pit. 
roll, pull a gun and fire. Sounds like a lot to 
cope with, but ihe conirol method is slick 
enough to allow you to do all this with case. 

The size and depth of ihe game are exten- 
sive considering the amount of graphics data 
crammed in there (and it all Ills on to four 
disks, with hardly any swapping al all). 
Flashback isn't just a polished platform shoot- 
em-up though. True, the action is frantic 
enough at limes to please any blasting fan. but 
the search -and- use adventure elements keep 
your brain working throughout. Some of the 
puzzles are extreme!) devious and will have

The guards are in hot pursuit. That's one bike down and the suspect doesn't appear to be moving, 
so it's back to HQ for a quick cup of tea and an alien burger before the invasion.

you scratching your head for a while before 
you slap yourself and shout "Of course! Why 
didn't I think of that before?". 

Although Another World was impressive, 
and the gameplay was enjoyable while it 
lasted, there wasn't enough depth for you lo 
sink your incisors into. As soon as you were in 
the adventure, you'd finished it. 

Flashback though is large, frantic and 
involved enough to keep you playing for quite 




some time before you manage to reach the end 
(especially if you play on the harder difficulty 
settings). The graphics and sound are better 
ihan Another World's, so there's no sacrifice 
there either, which makes this one of the slick- 
est, best-looking, most wonderful-sounding, 
atmosphere-packed, futuristic arcade adven- 
tures ever seen. Cyber fans, adventure freaks 
and blast addicts gel ready to be amazed.

UJ 



The Bitmaps are back! Famous for 
such Amiga classics as Speedball 2 
and Gods, the Brothers have spent 
the last year in a country hideaway, 
only recently emerging armed with a 
strange box marked 'Chaos'! 



"N 



ode activated. Exit open." A 
sampled voice emerges from the 
monitor's speakers . and believe 
me. it's never sounded so good... 

1991: Renegade brought us the Bitmap 
Kid. shade-wearing star of Magic Pockets, 
which received critical acclaim and won its 
star an appearance on TV. After over a year in 
development, the next game on I'rom l\>ckct.\ 
brings a whole Bitmap Gang to your Amiga. 
This gang is cooler than cool, but they are not 
likely to show up on Saturday morning telly. 
No. this group of mercenaries are more likely 
to be seen on the set of Bladerunner than any- 
where else. The Bitmaps are back with a 
vengeance, combining solid gameplay, atmo- 
spheric sound and that distinctive graphical 
style that adds their touch to each game. 

Let's play catch up 

The Chaos Engine revolves around (wo play- 
ers, chosen from the six available characters, 
which arc controlled cither by two players or 
one human and your Amiga. Each character 
has different abilities and armaments; for 
instance, the Gentleman is quick but he can't 
take much damage, while the Navvic is 
slower, but can sustain loads of injuries. 

The two chosen players run independently 
through the 16 levels, which scroll around so 
that both players arc always on the screen at 
the same time. If you're playing iwo-player, 
then each character has to wail for the other to 
catch up before he can move on; but in one- 
player mode the computer generally follows 





CHAOS ENGINE

you around anyway, only taking ihe initiative 
if there are plenty of goodies 10 be had 
Actually, this is jusi me being cynical - the 
Bitmaps have done very well building intelli- 
gence inio the computer players. 

Although you will always be the stronger 
force, the automatic player is certainly a wor- 
thy addition to a team, not just another spare- 
part to have along for the ride. The monsters' 
intelligence is rather impressive, loo; they 
won't walk into your line of fire, but instead 
they will manoevre themselves into a position 
where they can shoot you without being hit. 



lite levels are spin into foui worlds, each 
with u completely different graphical slyle, 
(see next page). The differences don't slop 
there, though, because each world throws up 
entirely new challenges for you to puzzle and 
ponder (as well as loads ol new monsters for 
you to blow io Kingdom Come). While play- 
ing you will often find yourself at a loss, 
because you seem to have done everything you 
can. and yet ihe magic words "level complete" 
have not been spoken, 

On closer inspection of a set of gargoyles. 
or of one of the strange rock formations, you

GAME REVIEW 




will notice that Ihcrc is something a lililc 
strange about one of them. Maybe il is facing a 
different way. or there is a subtle carving 
which doesn't appear on the others, but defi- 
nitely different. This is part of the puzzle 
clement of the game, where you don't spot the 
obvious until you've almost given up hope. 

Then, a simple shol from your weapon or 
special ability will remove the strange object, 
uncovering a set of keys which enable you to 
move on. On first sight, the game seems like 
an out-and-out blast, and a very good one. but 
subtle puzzles such as this make it head-and- 
shoulders above anything in the genre. 

The special ability is a specific weapon or 
aid given lo each player, in order lo help 
define his role in the game. The real hard- 
knock characters arc given really mealy 
special abilities, such as bombs and dynamite. 



while the gentleman is equipped with a map. 
and the preacher has a first aid kit. Although 
this ability is already with them, you can't 
■dually activate it until you pick up a power- 
up, cunningly tilled 
'special power.' 
These are strewn 
throughout the lev- 
els, .unl up to Six 
may be stored by 
each player. 

The special 

powers come in useful at certain points 
throughout the game, but not as useful as 
weapon power-ups. These can sometimes be 
found in the game, or bought from the shop for 
a large amount of money, but either way you 
must arm yourself well for the later levels. The 
first few give your fire extra power, but later 



m Solid gameplay, 

atmospheric sound

CHARACTER ASSASSINATION 





BRIGAND 
H«'s an all- 
rounder, with 
three special 
abilities. Don't 
be fooled by his 
big gun - if s 
not very power- 
ful. First special 
- shot burst. 

THUG 

Stupid but 
strong, appar- 
ently based on 
Renegade's, 
Project 
Manager 
Graeme. First 
special - 
Molotov. 





NAVVIh 
The strongest 
character, with 
a heavy gun so 
he's quite slow. 
Limited abili- 
ties, low 
intelligence. 
First special - 
dynamite. 

GENTLEMAN 
Very Intelli- 
gent, but has a 
weak weapon. 
Very fast with 
four specials. 
First special - 
map; so he's 
good to have 
around. 





•NARY 
Another good 

all-rounder, 

with average 

speed and 

intelligence. 

He can have 

up to three 

specials. First 

one - bomb. 

PREACHER 
Smart and fast, 
but low 
stamina. First 
special - first 
aid. Similar to 
Renegade's 
Tom Watson, 
apparently, but 
with more hair. 



power-ups actually give you more bullets, so 
confrontations with the more vicious monsters 
arc slightly less one-sided. Eventually, after 
parting with a few thousand credits, you'll be 
heavily armed, but fortunately your player 
doesn't slow down under the extra weight. 

The money monster 

Money may be gathered by several means: the 
monsters drop one of several currencies when 
shot, and these may be picked up for varying 
amounts of credits. Sometimes lucrative 
stashes of loot may be uncovered by picking 
up a set of gold keys, and then it's a race to see 
which player can gather the most cash. Often, 
it becomes a real-life fight as well, with the 
two players trying to physically stop the other 
from being greedy - at least, it gets that way 
after several hours of constant play. 

To make your way through the game, you 
must locate sets of silver keys. When these are 
picked up. a blocked passage will become 
unblocked somewhere on the landscape, 
enabling you to advance further into the game. 
Picking up keys will almost always activate 
other monsters, so watch out lor quick 
ambushes after you've stolen your booty. 

The main point of the game is a no-holds- 
barred shoot-em-up. where the object is to race 
around shooting monsters, gathering treasure 
and looking for the exit. But it's not quite that 
simple, because the exits are actually closed 
until you find and shoot the right objects to 
open them. These objects arc called nodes. 

Nodes arc located in varing numbers at set 
points in each landscape. They look a little bit 
like totem poles, and when activated they turn 
into something resembling a chess-piece with 
a ring moving up and down the stem. Only

GAME REVIEWS 




=5 

SO 







This is the stats screen which appears after each level is complete. It gives you (left to right): total 
pick-ups available, total pick-ups achieved and pick-ups assigned to each player, with percentages. 



when .til Ihc runles from .1 level are aciivaicd 
does ilif exil Open. Some levels actually have 

mora than one exit, so shooting different com- 
binaiions of the nodes opens different exits. If 
you manage to shoot all the nixies on such a 
level, you will find a small A or B above each 
exit, and you must lake your pick. 

Run the Gauntlet 

As you ma> have gathered In now. ihc ( 'haos 
Engine is a complicated game. You can play it 
as a last shooi-em-up. but to get lull enjoy- 
ment out ol il some ihoughl musl be employed 

10 work oui the patterns and strategies 

involved. The statistical panel which appears 



after completion of a level tells you just how 
much loot, keys and nodes were available, and 
just how many were actually collected - 
including percentages. You will somciimes be 
surprised ai how low the percentage is. 
because you thought that you had collected 
everything from the level. This makes you 
m ant to play the level again and again until 
you manage a decent percentage. 

The amount of work, playiesiing and 
detail gone into ihc game is obvious from the 
start. All the usual stuff is there, such as the 
Bitmap metallic graphics and the Bitmap shop. 
But also, if then.' is such a thing, the Bitmap 
attention-to-detail is as obvious here as it was 



WORLDS APART 






^•w- 




THE FOREST 

This is a world of swamps, mud-pits and pond-life. 
This includes mutant frogs, swamp-monsters, and. if 
you look carefully, you can even see a mushroom... 



THE WORKSHOPS 

Pink, very pink - but don't let that fool you. this is far 
from a soft level. Here, you see the guys in a macho 
pose, waiting for some monsters to come along. 



"Coooeee! Over here!" The monster stupidly thinks that we're waiting 
above the screen - but no. we've got him... 

with Speedball 2. The way your characters 
move, the way their guns recoil, the way the 
monsters gel knocked back when shot, it's 
veiy detailed and technically very clever. 



Tehcno techno techno 

The music always suits the mood, and while 
it's mostly techno, it never gets repetitive. The 
sound effects are superbly sampled; from the 

reassuring voice thai informs you of your col- 
lections and exit status, lo the satisfying 
'chink' when you pocket some coins, they are 
subtle and fit the game well. Added touches, 
such as the cricket samples which constantly 
play while you're running through forests, add 
much to the alrcad\ lense atmosphere. 

If there was one criticism, il would be the 
lack of momentum on the characters, which 
worked so well with Speedball 2. It's obvious 
on later levels why this wasn't included - the 
amount of monsters, characters and fire-power 
the programmers have crammed on screen 
with hardly any loss of pace is incredible. 

Yes. it's derivative of lots of games such 
as Commando and Gauntlet, but it's done so 
well, and includes so much detail, that all that 
is forgivable. On one-player mode, with just 
you and your Amiga against the nasties, it's a 
great game. Add a second joystick, with a male 
attached to the end. and it becomes .i classic.

FORTESQUE MANSION 

The two heroes come across some nightmarish brutes 
hell-bent on squashing them. Problem is, they are not 
on the same level, so shooting them is difficult.

and phenomenally tough lightning balls. Oh, and 
there are some puzzles involving sewers too.

Aaaaahh, remember the good old days of the Austin Ambassador, 
Boy George. Kajagoogoo and that great arcade game Tempest. 

Vector Storm 

INOVAgamesB £25.991 010-4922 1875 126 

Remember the classic arcade game Tempest! It was one of the 
pioneers of arcade entertainment from those early days when the 
digital universe was made up of vector lines and you really could 
play a decent game for only 10p. Times change though, the cost of 
gameplaying in an arcade has risen as economies have crumbled 
and Tempest has been all but forgotten. But then suddenly... 
along it comes again under the guise of Vektor Storm (yes, that 
really has been spelt with a V) and an inflated price-tag. 

For £25.99 it's a revival of the age-old legend. Battle your 
flimsy, vee-shaped craft down a series of peculiar towers by wip- 
ing out waves of what are presumably alien craft in order to 
crush the motherships and render another species extinct in true 
humanitarian tradition. If s a great game and no mistake. 
Addictive and frantic, but to be honest a second-hand Tempest 
arcade machine can't cost much more 
nowadays, can it?

Ragnarok 



Mirage ■ £34.99 ■ 0260 299909 

Ragnarok is a struggle between good and bad depicted on an 
eleven-by-eleven board. One player plays the good gods, whose 
objective is to transport the Odin piece from the centre to one of 
the four corners. The other plays the bad gods. Their objective is 
to stop Odin reaching the comer by capturing him. 

The animated conflict between the pieces is entertaining and 
the computer opponents are reasonably good, each of them has 
their own characteristics, although they do seem to slip into stale- 
mate fairly easily. 

Two minor problems: the 3D viewpoint means if s possible to 
'loose' pieces behind others. Also, the cursor, used to move pieces, 
has a habit of disappearing under players when there's a group, 
and you can't always tell which player you're pointing at. 

Ragnarok is not dissimiliar to chess and rea sonably playable, 
although at £34.99 it's a tad expensive.

HP LASERJET «r COMPATIBLE • FLASH ROM UPGRADEABLE! 



ftco/i, the world's second largest manufacturer of laser printer engines, have used their expertise to produce a Orst' in laser 
printers for the world market, the LP1200 with FLASH ROM, HP LaserJet III" compatible, the LP12O0 employs industry proven 
laser technology. Unlike LED printers, vrhtch use hght emitting diodes, the LP12Q0'$ laser Itght source is able to produce the 
most accurate and intense pnnted images, tt has a fast efficient processor and engine, together \¥rth a straight paper path 
destgn which allows pnnting at a full 6 pages per minute and, it can address a range of print resolutions up to 400 dpi, Ihe 
2m RAM version can print a full A4 page of graphics at 300 dpi and a full A4 page of text, or AS page of graphics* using 
standard resident internal fonts and the alternate controller firmware supplied, at 400 dpi. A free Windows dnver 
supplied enables the 2Mb Ricoh LP1200 to pnnt a typical page of text at 400 dpi from Windows 3, 1, using 
the alternate controller firmware supplied on the Windows Driver Disk and 
standard internal resident fonts. The 4** RAM version has the added 
advantage of being able to print a full A4 page of graphics at 400 dpi 
and makes full use of the LP1200's 400 dpi printing capabilities, i 

such as using Microsoft Window fonts. £ ** 

Unique additional standard features include FLASH ROM 
'future proof technology and LAYOUT ■ a powerful 
document description language. The LP120Q*s unique 
internal FLASH ROM, whtch holds the printer controller firmware, 
can easily be updated as new developments in technology occur. This 
protects the investment you maAe in buying a Ricoh LP120Q. Other 
manufacturers would require you to buy a new printer* 
Internal FLASH ROM and industry standard FLASH 
ROM IC cards can also be used to permanently 
store fonts, macros, graphics and extra emulations. 
Again, unlike the competition, the LP1200 includes 
LAYOUT a powerful document descnphon language 
as standard, whtch offers unique opportunities to 
develop custom made pnnting systems. Forms and 
document templates can be designed and stored electronically in 
the LP1200's FLASH ROM, alleviating the need for pre-printed forms! 

The LP1200 comes complete with a 100 sheet A4 paper tray and the 

facility to feed stngle sheets of paper and card up to I57gsm. An optional extra universal feeder provides 
the facility to automatically feed up to 150 sheets, from sues of 96mm i 148mm to 216mm x 356mm in 
sue, at weights of up to i56gsm. tt can also feed up to 15 envelope s, ov erhead transparencies and 
labels automatically.

GAME REVIEW 




W 




7D 



sO 





Yeah! This is what every cute platform game needs - fluffy things meeting the business end of a chainsaw. This is the first of 
the puzzley torture screens, and you're supposed to be saving the fluffy, but I'd rather sit back and let nature take its course. 



The Mile of this cute V Huffy plat- 
former is also a rather cunning 
acronym: Clyde Kadcliff Exterminates 
All The Unfriendly Repulsive Earth-ridden 
Slime, or to he more concise. Creatures. 
Contrived, mais non. The lull title cryptically 
gives away the plot, bin if you can't manage to 
work il out here's a brief rundown of the 
essentials. Cute alien*, land on Harth. find nice 
empty island, everything hunky dory. Nasi) 
demons arrive, kidnap all the aliens except 
one. You're that one alien. Clyde, and you've 
giil to rescue all \our mates. 

Creatures is actually a conversion of a 
("64 game and was (according to Trenton 
Webb. ex-Amiga Format man and now editor 
of Commodore Formal) one of the besi games 
of I wo on thai format Yes, 1990. What we 

have here is a three year-old platform game 



CREATURES is 
available from 
Thalamus 
0494 474713 






Finish a level and you visit this brassy looking witch. She'll give you some 
power-ups in exchange lor the creatures you've grabbed on the last level. 



that's almost a straight copy of the 8-bit origi- 
nal. Still, there's nothing wrong with sticking 
to a winning formula. Let's face il. every 
English national spoiling side sticks rigidly to 
the same squad until they get soundly beaten 
by a developing country with a population 
smaller than the Halifax Town FC supporters 
club. OK. maybe there can be some problems 
about slicking with winning formulas, but 
surely after three years Creatures is going to 
take advantage of the superior capabilities of 
the Amiga? 

Bonny Clyde 

The basics of the game are the same as the C64 
original, and any other platformer you care to 
mention. Clyde has to go across a platform 
landscape taking out the baddies blocking his 
path and making it to the end of the level. 
Nothing outstanding here, but there's the usual 
amount of fun to be had from working out how 
to get past the difficult parts, and from discov- 
ering a new. nice-looking level. 

Like most platformcrs. Creatures has its 
own 'novelty' bits, designed to make you think 
that it's a bit different. As you go through the 
game there are special creatures that can be 
picked up and exchanged in a shop at the end 
of each level for more powerful weapons. 
Once you've finished a couple of levels, you 
have to rescue a fluffy chum from a torture 
machine. This sub game takes place on a sin- 
gle screen, and as long as you've bought some 
decent power-ups in the shop it's very easy. 

So. it's an average platformer but is it any 
fun? The levels are pretty dull, and only the 
odd bit of water livens them up: you can ride 
on a leaf across waterfalls and go swimming 
underwater, a la Wm /xaland Story. But it's 




not just dull. It's slow. Clyde plods around the 
screen at a really pedestrian pace which only 
emphasises the general dullness of the thing. 

There are other frustrating aspects to 
Creatures. The game is full of smooth slopes, 
but as soon as you try to walk Clyde up one ol 
them, you discover that you have to treat them 
as though they were blocky steps and jump up. 
And the collision detection's a little precise 
too. To make some jumps you have to be in 
absolutely the right place - usually with most 
of your character magically standing over the 
edge of a platform. 

Even the early baddies need several hits to 
destroy them so you'll find yourself playing 
like a madman - plodding along to reach the 
next baddic and then pumping the fire-button 
like a maniac to take the thing out. 

Few creature comforts 

For all its annoying faults. Creatures still 
hangs together enough to give a platform 
addict a few hours of enjoyment, but it's only 
got six levels and three puzzle screens, so 
don't expect it to last forever. Unless you're 
dying for another platform fix. there's not 
much in Creatures for you. 

It's only an adequate conversion of the 
C64 game, and seems to have slowed down 
and lost some indefinable 'umph!' in the pro- 
cess. And even if you do like it. there's not 
enough in the game (variety or size) to keep 
you playing for very long. In a budget range 
this might have been worth a gamble but at full 
price it just isn't up to scratch. 

Chris Buxton O 





An adequate enough conversion of a crack- 
ing ("54 title. 

Hardl) expands on (he original at all. 

Torture puzzle screens are funny but no 
challenge whatsoever. 

Slow paced and graphically uninspiring. 

No passwords, but it's not that big anyway. 

Too pricey for a game of this standard.

******************** 




BTCS requirements: one friend, lots of time and an obsessive desire to 
spend hours in front of an Amiga. 

The Bard's Tale 
Construction Set 

Interplay! £29.991 071-700 1857 

Hands up who remembers The Bard's Tale7 Good, now put your 
hands down, because a) you look stupid, and b) it was only a sort 
of metaphorical gambit designed to draw you into the review. 

The point I'm making is that The Bard's Tale is getting on a 
bit. ft was one of the first RPGs to reach the mainstream, but with 
the likes of EOTB2 and the upcoming Hired Guns, it's doubtful any- 
one would now want to build their own dungeons, let alone find 
anyone else who'd want to play with them. 

Nevertheless, this is what BTCS is for. Entire new maps, mon- 
sters, items and spells that can be created and saved out as a 
complete executable game. In something approaching foresight- 
edness on Interplay's part, they've seen to it that you don't need 
a copy of the original game to run this one. Hooray. 

The most interesting part is the Monster Editor, because here 
you can be the cruellest. You basically have to fill in the blanks 
and make sure you don't make the giant spider so darn tough it's 
impossible to kill it. Each type of monster has a picture associated 
with it which can also be changed. There are about 30 preset but 
you can draw your own and import them if you want something 
more exotic such as a Davro Troll or That Bloke From The 
Werther's Original Advert Skeleton. 

When it's all working together fairly well (you can test the 
game at any time), choose the Build Game option and it's all 
saved out in one runnable lump. And that's all there is to rt 

You'd have to be a pretty serious Bardhead to want The 
Construction Set. Planning a world is a time-consuming task, and 
unless you've got a friend who'd want to play it there really isn't 
much point. Come to think of it your friend would have to be 
fanatical too; the graphics and gameplay are primitive by today's 
standards. And although there's nothing complicated about using 
The Set, its presentation isn't exactly sophisticated, being mostly 
text-based and of a typed- in-from-a*BASIC*li sting appearance. 

As far as it is, BTCS is a good piece of software that does its 
job well, but you can't help feeling that an 
Eye of the Beholder 2 Construction Set 
would have been a better idea.

GAME REVIEW 




* 






If you like the strategy or 

trading genre, read on. If 

you're into shoot-em-ups 

with plenty of gratuitous 

violence, hacking and 

slaying, then we suggest 

that you keep on turning 

the pages.... because 

this game will appeal to 

you about as much as 

being run over by an 

express train... 



So. whal's ii all about, then.' Well, suf- 
fice to s;i> that we're dealing with a 
near-god game, only this lime you're 
not completely omnipotent, and you do gel 
pursued for your overdraft. Il*s empire build- 
ing time once more. but. surprise, surprise. il"s 
about railways. Not only that, but creating 
limns ami cities around these railwaw and 
recouping ihc investment you put into them. 
"Ahah!". I hear you cry. "a clone of Railway 
I \nnm\" Well, close, bin not quite. It is simi- 
lar, but the emphasis of the two games is 
completely different. 

You start off with a laije wad of Josh and 
.1 landscape jus! waiting to be concreted over. 
You lay down a set of tracks, build a couple of 
stations and buy yourself a nice modem freight 
locomotive. Run this for a few days, and 
you'll build up a goiul stock of materials. Now 
conies the difficult part: what sort of buildings 
do you go for? Are you going to build a fac- 
tory or a residential area? Or how about a ski 
rcsun? The world, as lhc> say. is your oyster 
Unlike Railway Tycoon, this game also 
involves building up the cities. 

If you're planning lots of expansion, 
you'll need to approach the bank for a loan. 
No problem, but watch out for the interest 
rates. Invest this dosh in expanding your 
empire, and if you've any left over, why not 
play the stock market? How about a few hun- 
dred shares in Heavy Water Chemistry PLC? 
Again, feel free, but beware. As stockbrokers 
never lire of saying: "The value of slocks and 
shares can decline as well as increase." 

Speculate to accumulate 

So your empire continues to expand. You lav 
new lines, buy new buildings and move into 
commercial wheeler dealings. Bui don't forget 
the loan you've taken out. because in a few 
years lime the bankers will be knocking on 
your door and politely requesting their money 
back, plus interest. 

Assuming you're still surviving after a 
couple of years game lime, you may want to 
move into even bigger things. You can build 
stadiums, amusement parks, golf courses and

hotels. Bui make sure thai you've goi a gi>od 
supply of materials and a good passenger net- 
work supplying them, because ihis is the life 
blixxl of your empire: people and goods min- 
ing back and forth. Owning several hotels near 
an amusement park iv .ill very well, bul if yoti 
haven 'l got any passenger hues reaching them, 
how are people going to gel to the park in 
order lo give you iheir money? 

And so ii continues, until the face of the 
Karth is covered with your railway lines and 
your apartment hhvks stand on every comer. 





INSTALLABLE 



Well, perhaps it's not quite that big. 
There's no end as such to the game, but once 
you've goi S42 million in loose change float- 
ing around, it's fairly safe to assume that 
relatively little could happen lo destroy yotU 
network. Thus, ihe game gives \ou the option 
ol giving it all up and starting again. But I 
wouldn't worry about thai at the start. 
Reaching that point will take many years of 
game time and several weeks of real lime, 
depending on Ihe scenario you start on. There 
are several included in the game, ranging from 



AN IDIOT'S GUIDE TO REAL ESTATE 





Flats: prob- 
ably the 
first things 
you'll 
build. A 
good 
source of 
income* 



Hotels: 
position 
them as 
near as 
possible to 
your recre- 
ational 
facilities. 





factory: 
creates 
building 
materials, 
which you 
can use 
for con- 
struction. 



Golf course: 
this can be 
profitable if 
it's sighted 
correctly 
near large 
cities and 
hotels. 







Commercial: 
shops and 
offices are 
useful facili- 
ties to 
encourage 
people to 
live nearby* 



Amusement 
park: watch 
out for the 
firework dis- 
plays on

evenings in

GAME REVIEW 




The main playing area for the game. My trains run from the station at the top right to the station at the bottom left. All of 
the apartment buildings near that station have been built by me. In fact, it's mine, all mine. 

a green field new town area. lo ihe maioi 
restructuring of a large citv network. 

This is noi a fast game: even a small game 
Such as the new town scenario will lake sev- 
en] hours before you gel anywhere, and some 
of the bigger scenarios (such as building rail- 
Way lines and populating the San Francisco 
bay area) will take many days of play, ami 
several years of computer time to even begin 
to gel close to the objectives. You'll also have 
to be patient to see the fruits of your labours, 
so don't build an apartment block and tear it 
down if it's not making a profit within a few 
days. Patience and long-term strategies are the 
name of ihis game. 

In-gamc sound effects are present, with all 
(he chuffa-chuffa and clanketv -clank train- 



type noises >ou'd expect, as well as some 
music. Regrettably, this is irritating and 
reminds me of Ihe sort of thing you'd hear in 
an elevator, so it's best turned off very quickly. 
You can also alter Ihe speed of the game, and

There's on-line help, and the icons are prett)

ning in low -resolution mode is small, and its 
noi possible lo lay long lengths ol* track tn one 
go. but this is more of an inconvenience than a

ing area via a satellite view, which shows you 
the positions ol" all the buildings, ihe trains and 
the materials. 

I really do like this game. Once vou've 
started, it's difficult to stop. There are plcntv 
itl possibilities, and no one 'correct' way of 
winning As many successful solutions exist as 
there are possible paths lor the tracks. 

The scenarios with Ihe game provide a 
wide range of challenges in a variety of situa- 
tions, am) it's got plenty of lasting appeal. 
Several scenarios are e\treinel> complex, and 
w ill require a great amount of thought.

GAME REVIEW 





1 



o 




A prime example of the more gruesome graphics to be found in Alivn 3. Here. Ripley torches one of the alien pods, which 
spawn the face-hugging babies made famous by John Hurt in the original film. It's nice to see them back In the game version. 




The three feature films in the Alien 
series filers film-goers three different 
genres: Alien is j suspense-thriller; 

Mien* is ,i Terminatorsty\t shooting and 
explosion bonanza; while the third. Alien 3 is a 
kind of Ealing coined) scl aboard a prison 
planet where Ripley, the survivor of the first 

two films, crashes her spaceship. Ii seems like 
an Ealing because: I) - it's lull of chirpy cock- 
neys, 2) - there are loads of slapstick routines; 
and 3 ) - there is no real violence or suspense 
at all in the film. That's not to say it isn't 
good, il's jusi different, and lull marks to Ihc 
director for making n so. 

In space... 

Anyway, this game is I lie-in with the latter of 
the three films. This would be a cracking!) 



good ihing. except thai it doesn't follow the 
plot in any detail, apart from the fact that it 
si.irs Ripley and an abundance of aliens. 
Acclaim have spurned the chance of an excel- 
leni graphical adventure, capitalising on the 
unexpected humour of the film, and instead 
pnxiuced yei another platform shoot-em-up. 

This has presumably got something to do 
with consoles which is a shame because the 
possibilities opened up with the power of the 

Amiga are tremendous. Also, we could men- 
lion [he lad thai the film didn't involve any 
kind ol weaponry, and yet in the game Ripley 
is armed » uh a name-thrower, a grenade 

launcher, a pulse rifle, and a sei of hand 
grenades Hardly ill-equipped, eh? Still, let's 
give Acclaim the benefit of the doubt, because 
shool-em-ups are generally a little bit dull 

without am weapons. 




ALIEN 

is available from 

Acclaim 

0962 877788 



A f«c-off between 
the two main stars of 
the game - in fact, 
they are the only two 
stars of the game... 




Ripley waits for the alien to fall before pump- 
ing it full of grenades... 




"Does the name Custer mean anything to you?" 
The aliens attempt to teach Ripley a lesson. 

The graphics are sound enough, with a 
good, dark use o\ colour on the backdrops and 
an excellent alien sprue, but what's happened 
to Ripley? Admittedly, in the feature film she 
looks a bii weird, but in the Acclaim version 
she's so thin looking she looks like she's been 
filmed in C'inemaScope, and she leans forward 
when running as if there's a 70mph headwind. 

...no-one can hear... 

To the games credit, the ch ar acters are quite 
well animated - Ripley runs, climbs and 
crawls realistically, with her legs moving in 
sync - but il loses ,i lot ol credibility in the 
jumping and leaping stakes. 

Wen 3 offers very little in the way of 
atmosphere. For a sum. there's no title music. 
Acclaim have wasted the opportunity of build- 
ing up a tense atmosphere before the game by 
omitting to include a haunting, atmospheric 
title track, and instead have left it silent - 
which is unforgivable. Even the title graphics 
are rather dull, so there's nothing to hook you 
into the game. 

In the game itself you have a choice of 
either terrible in-game music, or some good 
(but sparse i sampled spot effects. The doors 
open with a nice lervo noise, the grenades 
explode with .i satisfying boom, but Riple> 
emils a weak masculine grunt when hit. which 





HEAVY ARTILLERY 



Pulse rifle: 
not very power- 
ful, but does 
make bits of alien 
fly off in a satisfy- 
ing manner. 

Grenade launcher: 
incredibly power- 
ful, makes a good 
noise when you 
fire, and you have 
99 of them! 





Flame-thrower 
a little bit weed- 
ier than the 
wide-screen ver- 
sion, but pretty 
effective anyway. 

Hand grenade: 
comes in useful in 
the many air 
shafts. Drop one 
of these, and it's 
goodbye alien... 





FOOTBALL 



The aliens' intelligence leaves something to be desired in the game. In the film, this alien would 
have ripped Ripley to pieces by now. but here he waits until she approaches him... 



K-.illy doesn't suil her at all. 

The list continue*-: there \ no 'blip* noise 
when the tracker is activated - which added an 
enormous amount of tension and aimosphcre 
to the feature films. Also missing is the terrify- 
big screech which the big-screen aliens give 
out when shot - why. 

So what of the game? Well, it lakes place 
over 15 levels, which are very large in size, 
and consist of dimly In corridors linked up In 
narrow air shafts where Ripley crawls along - 
her guns still work in here - just as well 
because aliens patrol ihe shafts. 

The two basic things to do in the game arc 
shoot aliens, obviously, and rescue people 
which the aliens have imprisoned. You are 
given one of three combinations of these tasks. 
depending on ihe level: Rescue, where you 
must locate and rescue the prisoners; Mayhem, 
where you must kill all the aliens: and 
Mission, where you must rescue prisoners and 
kill the aliens. 

...you scream 

When you have completed a level you must 
then attempt to locale the exit - which is 
sometimes quite difficult in itself, especially 
since you have to try and beat Ihe clock. Yes. 
there is a time limit as well, which is quite 
light, bul noi impossible. 

Killing the aliens is quite easy, when you 
consider the amount of fire-power at your dis- 
posal. You only have a certain amount of 
ammunition, though, so you have to be fairly 
sparing. Your pulse rifle uses aboul ten shots 
to kill an average alien, but just one grenade 
from ihe 99 available will take him oui with a 
flurry of acid and alien bodily parts. 

This aspect of the gameplay is great, and 
this type of gratuitous violence gives you a bit 
of a kick. Again on the minus side, though, the 
aliens could do with a bit of intelligence. 
Instead of homing in on you. they follow sei 
paths, so they arc easy to dodge with a little 
practice; and when ihcy run off screen they 



will disappear and 
reappear from their . 
start position - a bit 
of lax program- 
ming, methinks. 
Also, in some 
places there seems 
to be some of the 
map graphics miss- 
ing - on one of the 
levels you find that 
you can walk into 
darkness, until you 

eventually fall to 

your death. Maybe 
this is intentional, but 
I'm not completely 
convinced. 

No. the whole game seems as though ii has 
been rushed out to meet a (ighi deadline, which 
is a shame because with a relatively small 
amoum of work it could have been a greai 
shoot-cm-up. There is a good jiame in here 
somcwhea\ bul faced wiih ihe lack of variety, 
sound and overall atmosphere, il just wont 
leap out and grab you... 





r A strung? choice of garni- for Ihe Alien J

udtenlure would hate been IwUcr.

We researched the colour printer markef in great depth to find a colour printer good enough to cope with Amiga's powerful graphic output, yet at an affordable price. 
We found the perfect printer in the Panasonic KX-P2180+ KX-P2123 quiet printers. 

We then considered that if you were going to buy a Panasonic printer, you would probably need a quality word processing package to use with it. We found that too, 
in 'Wordworth', yet at a retail price of £129.9° we thought that might be a little too expensive on top of your printer purchasel So together with Panasonic we decided 
to give a copy of 'Wordworth' free with every Panasonic printer. How's that for added value?

GAME REVIEWS 










INSTALLABLE 



The throbbing heart 
of your engine. Those 
two chaps at the 
front are your stok- 
ers. Stoke it up! 




Despite rumours to the contrary, this is 
not a Ranulph Fiennes simulator. You 
are not endeavouring to cross the arc- 
tic armed only with a penknife and .1 short 
piece of string. Instead, you are aiming 10 lib- 
erate the world from a post nuclear winter and 
domination by a group of bad guys. 

It's like this, y'see. A mad scientist type 
called John Merrick had this great idea to gel 
rid n| the greenhouse effect by blowing up a 
couple of nuclear bombs at each pole. It would 
have been a good idea, if the scientists hadn't 
completely nailed it up and plunged the world 
into a never-ending nuclear w inter. 

Several centuries later, and thermal under- 
wear is still fashionable, and the only transport 
between cities is via a huge tail network con- 
trolled by a bunch of bad guys called the 
Viking Union. Playing the pan of a good guy 
who's discovered a possible way to break the 
hold of the winter, and thus destroy the power 
of the Vikings, you manage to nick a train, and 
set out on a mission to discover the secrets of a 
cold and dangerous world 

Mammoth task 

I'm sure you know the son of thing. Travel 
between cities, do a bit of trading, blow up a 
few enemies, chat to philosophers and follow 
up rumours which could lead you to your 
eventual destination. 

To the posthumous delight of Arthur and 
the NUM. the only source of energy left is 
coal, which fuels your locomotive and acts .is 
currency. Occasionally, a message will direct

U£4LTtt lNb£X : 47 



vou to a newly discovered mine, where you 
can prospect lor coal, if you've got the appro- 
priate equipment. 

Cities can be of four types: commercial 
(selling miscellaneous goods), industrial (man- 
ufacture and sale of wagons), slave markets 
(work it out for yourself) and mammoth fairs. 
These are not big fun lairs with lots of can- 
dyfloss, but meetings where you can buy or 
sell any mammoths you may have bumped into 
on the way. Did 1 mention them? No? Oh. 
Well, given the cold weather, woolly mam- 
moths have made a comeback. They're good 
for beav) transport and you can use the dung 
as a face pack. 

You meet herds o\ them wandering around 
and are given the option of rounding a few up 
in true Wild West fashion. Or rather, your 
slaves do. since all you get is a screen telling 
you how many you've captured. 



Coal mining the 
Transarctica way. 
Send the slaves down 
the mine and forget 
all about the safety 
precautions.

I appear to have blown the engine up. Oh dear. 
Oh well. I never liked it anyway. 

Occasionally, when you enter a town. .1 
rumour (general gossip which may prove help- 
full will he available. Don't worry, ihey'rc not 
hard to find. Instead ol the usual trading icons. 
you gel the icons for receiving rumours and 
research, hoth ol which reward you with three 
lines ol text in something close to, but not 
quite English. Big deal. It's usually either a 
fact or j hint pointing sou in another direction. 

Whether this nukes any sense or not is 
another matter. You don't gel anything else, 
just a short hint or fact. This is where the game 
starts to have problems. Apart from moving 
around the map. there's relatively little interac- 
tivity. You never really feel like you're quite 
in control of your own destiny, even when 
you're in pitched bailie with one ol the Viking 
battle trains. 

Tracks of my tears 

You can aim your train with machine-guns and 
Camions, as well as employing troops and war 
mammolhs in order In heal tip the opposition. 
It's all very well, but about as exciting as 
standing on the end of a platform taking down 
train's numbers as they pass you by . 

The animation for the troops anil mam- 
moths is. to put it politely, poor, and would he 
more at home on a CM than an Amiga. You 
can move your train back and forth on a short 
stretch of track and blast the Opponents' wag- 
ons, or send oul troops to plant explosives, bul 
you're more likely to give up in disgust. 
Fortunately the train conflict can be turned off. 
and the result decided by the computer. 

You don't expeci scrolling shoot-em-up- 
type action from a game of this genre, but it's 
not unreasonable to expeci some degree of 
choice and freedom.

Crystal Kingdom Dizzy 

CodemastersB £19.99 

Haven't we been here before? Yet again, disaster strikes the 
Yolkfolk and only one egg can save them. Yes, Dizzy, that all 
round good-egg returns in another adventure, this time in the 
Crystal Kingdom. 

During the four sections of the game you can walk on clouds, 
study light engineering, ride dolphins, get lost in mazes and 
parachute into enemy territory - a bit like Indiana Jones but with- 
out the sex appeal. It's fun, but having only three lives with no 
continues docs put a damper on things. 

The music is catchy, and only slightly annoying, but you can 
choose sound effects instead which are quite good. On the down 
side, loading takes a long time, and when you run out of lives the 
game has to reload. Having said that it's pretty big. and should 
last you a while, but the other Dizzy games came out for less than 
eight quid and there really isn't enough 
here to justify an extra 12 gold coins.

GAME REVIEW

^3 



UJ 



Just when we thought the Dungeon 

Master genre was dead and buried, 

ICE raise it from the grave and bring it 

back to life with Abandoned Places 2. 



The Dungeon Master coiicepl was an 
enormous success because ii brought 
fantasy exploration shockingly to life, 
by replacing the text-adventure which needed 
lo be told how to operate. Not surprisingly, 
software houses have found it hard to expand 
upon this initial design. We've seen science 
fiction variants and many twists on the lanias\ 
theme, the upshot of which is that it's becom- 
ing more and more difficult to approach the 
genre from a new angle. So. you may ask, 
what's so good about Abandoned Places 2'! 

Stakes through the art 

Abandoned Places 2 is an attractive sequel. 
proving that when we whined about the origi- 
nal's questionable artwork (AFM - S2 per 
cent), the Hungarian designers were listening. 
A massive arena of exploration is still at the 
core of the game's appeal, but the graphics 
have been updated lo a standard which rivals 
Eye of the Beholder I and 2. 

A competent intro sequence introduces the 
bizarre storyline: apparently an evil force 
known as Pendugmalhe is going all out lor 
world domination, yet remains vulnerable so 
long as an ancient magical shield is intact. 

The shield can be destroyed by a sword 
called Kuhalk: the problem is that both items 
are hidden, so surprisingly enough, it's your 
job to find Kuhalk and keep it from falling into 
the wrong hands. After that, there's die simple 
chore of annihilating Pendugmalhe himself to 
round-off your adventure. 

In fact, it would all be rather easy, if it 
wasn't for a veritable hoard of the living dead 
patrolling over 32 levels between you and your 
ultimate goal. If you've played the original, 
then Abandoned Places 2 should prove an 
ideal challenge from the word go. 

Illusionary walls arc everywhere in the 
first level, a classic dungeon selling, making 
ihc most efficient system of exploration a pro- 
cess of charging the party headlong into the 
stonework. Later levels vary incredibly, 
requiring you to trek through forests and many 
other types of terrain. 



One of the points of 
your quest is to find 
Kuhalk. a massively 
powerful sword, mod- 
elled here by Bon. 








INSTALLABLE 



ABANDONED PLACES 
is available from 
ICE 0453 756993 



Accompanying you into the depths of 
Kuhalk's resting place are four characters, 
available tot selection from a parade of 25 
hardened adventurers. Strangely these hirelings 
only come in two flavours: fighters, the load- 
hearers who carry the group's belongings as 
well as culling hostile denizens of the under- 
world inlo ribbons, and magic-users, who are 
the flame-throwers of the party, vital for the 
completion of certain puzzles and for healing 
the wounded after bloody combat. 

Mighty sword of Dobber 

It's a pity thai Abandoned Places 2 has kept 
this rigid class structure which made the char- 
acters so limited in I'.vc of the Beholder, 



because the ability to learn others' skills 
through practice in Dungeon Master gave 
adventuring a lot more scope. Nevertheless, 
playing with attributes and a broad selection of 
faces add variation lo the otherwise mundane 
procedure of character generation with which 
any role-playing game must begin. 

In the game itself, the two branches of 
your party can be conveniently called into play 
lhanks to some friendly icons which are quick 
and easy to access. The backpacks of fighters 
are available when their faces are highlighted, 
but magic-users have a collective menu with 
which spells can be activated, so their support 
is always ai hand should you want an enemy 
charcoal-yrilled for tea.

this too many times, and the CEG8 will be out to cut off your supply...

GAME REVIEW 




You don't want to choose Rondon. you want to choose Zebulon instead. You don't want to be a fighter, you want to be a 
mage instead. You don't want to paint a silver stripe across your face, you want to grow a moustache like normal people... 

mem is awkward because the directional icons 
arc i. ii too small to use .h speed. Movement is 
possible \ i.i the numeric keypad, bui we 
huven'l all goi those nowadays have we? 

Deeper and deeper 

Dungeon-delving in the first game was far 
from straightforward because »>i sub-quests 
and puzzles, which provided clues during each 
level. ITiesc proved a great occasional inter- 
lude from the main quest and they have been 
continued in Abandoned Places 2. 

Abo\e ihe 32 underworld regions of the

peculiar, but regular occurrence on the first 
level are the floor tiles thai rapidl) spin 01 tele-

dramatic sound enhancement from the origi- 
nal. Whispers and fool steps echo ominously 
around ihe dungeons. You can hear the eneiin 
advancing through the darkness, although 
when the parts comes to blows, the sounds of 
combat are an anticlimax. 

More interesting sounds take I while to

pans often mislead you into thinking someone

Live to tell 

Overall. Abandoned Plan's 2 compares 
Favourabls with /. w of the Beholder 2. which 
was an outstanding sequel itself. It s a massive 
improvement on the firsi game and another 
huge adventure which promises days, and days 

ot Irantie exploration. 

However, there is that awkward move- 
ment system for the mouse to handle, and 
another major disappointment is the inability 

to throw objects by dragging them lo the view- 
ing window. 

But these are onl\ iin\ Haws in an other- 
wise excellent expansion ol a Worth) game. 

Other members ol the Dungeon Master genre 
should beware: Abandoned Places 2 is fast 
approaching the top spot.

Behold! I am Lionheart, 

and by the power of Thalion I will 

bring arcade-quality action to your 

Amiga... 



Console owner: 
"M> Mum and 
Dud bought mc .1 
console for Christmas, along 
with the survr-sc\\ S»nn the 
Porcupine and Supei Mono 
Shopping Trolley games. The) 
spent a whole week's wages on 
them, hut I reckon it was worth 
it - the graphics are just 
sooooo good. What did 
you gel. then.'" 
\miua owner: "I got a Comnuxlore Amiga. 1 
Console owner: "Aren't they dead boring? I 
mean. everybody rants on about how vou can 
run serious stuff on them, but there are no 
games that can gci am where near my Sank 
cart - are there?" 

Amiga owner: "That's where you're talking 
cack. actually. Yes there are loads of serious 
applications for my Amiga, bill there are some 
seriously good games, loo." 
Console owner: "Oh yeah, name one." 
Amiga owner: "Lionheart, lt"s the new game 
from Thalion sou know, the cues who 

e 

brought us ,\o V. <»id Prize and Amber star. 
It's a scrolling heal-em-up. with over \2 visu- 
all\ stunning levels. The main character and 
the enemies are really well animated, and 
the main screen is made up from over c>m dif- 
ferent colours and that's only by using my 
Amiga 600! 

"Oh. and did I mention the parallax 
scrolling? I tried counting the number of levels 
of parallax hut I ran out of fingers, so I used 
my Amiga to calculate them. Oh sorry, I i»

LIONHEART 
is available from 
Thalion 
071-481 9214 



Th# evil weed threat- 
ens another children's 
hero. This on* actu- 
ally spits its pips at 
you. so it's definitely 
best avoided. 







aVUkiaU 





I ^ VJ la 1« 



As Lionheart stood facing the audience, in his favourite Widow Twanky wig and outfit, the chirpy 
pantomime crowd called out to him: "Behind you..." 





Our hero stands and. er, has a rest from all the 
vicious maiming. Hang on. where's his sword? 

He's right, you know 

OK. that may be just a wee bit exaggerated, 
but if there was evet a game to match (and 
even belter) the best console graphics, then it's 
Lionheart. The intra sequence almost makes 
your eyes pup out. with some amazingly 
detailed and colourful sprites mapping out the 
stor> of a big guy and his Conan-esquc qucsl 

tor the Lionheart (hence the name). That isn't 

all though; the music is real I) deep and boom- 
ing, and it changes m mood depending on 
where you are in the game, adding a real 
cinema-like air to it all... 

Hang on. maybe we're getting a little car- 
ried away here. Let's not prejudge .i game just 
ni\ the strength ot its graphics alter all. most 

console games are pretty, bui iii.it docsn'i 

make them all good, does il? So. looking 

beyond the cosmetics ot the game, how does it 
actually pla> ? 

Er. il actually plays rather nicely, to be 
honest. Your character. Valdyn. is not onl) 
blessed with some rippling!) large biceps, bin 
luckily he also possesses a rather large sword 
which you can use to merrily slash sour wa> 
through the game. 

[Tic nasties thai you come across on youi 

wa) are suitably detailed and nice!) animated, 
and they die in a particular!) satisfying manner 
when they are given the brunt of your Gillette 
sharp sabre. It's not just fighting thai your man 
excels in: he can also run. jump, swing and 



Begone, foul sea-horse. Get back or this little 
beast I'm sitting on will get very nasty... 

climb bits oi the scenery, which are conve- 

mentis SCI oui so that \ou can uuickls run 
through, collect a lew things, kill a tew things, 
and then get the hell out. 

There's not much in the way ol puzzles 

here, by the way; this is pure bcat-em-up 
territory, where reflexes arc all. You're given 

three lues, with two continue options, and 

then it's up to you. You'll come across levels 
which move oi disappear bi the most inconve- 
nicni moments: plants which spii poison at 
you. vegetation thai mercilessl) sucks you in. 
and some boiling-hoi lava which iiist doesn't 
like sou at all. 

Cohen the Barbarian 

It's all pretts much derivative of ever) other 

fantasy/scrolling plailormcr/beai-em-up. but it 
docs it .ill so mceh that it's difficult to fault it. 
In fact, if you find the game a little easy. 
Thalion have kiudl) included a difficult) level 
known as Lionhard. which makes the whole 
game nighimarishl) difficult. The lavoul is 
quite different to ihe normal game, so its a hit 
like having another game running alongside 
the original, lull marks. Thalion. 

Three points spring to mind which could 
have been made better; firstly, the way your 
character is animated leaves a little to be 
desired. It's not ihe smoothness of movement 
we're talking here, or the dynamics, or the 
number ol available moves No. it's the way 




Oh. bhmcy. What * choice - l - v# got a horrid thingy to th* left water underneath, and unspeakable 
horrors to the right. I think I'll just stand here, look pretty, and beat my chest for a while. 




?SSS .f :■ 




If you want Gig«r-«$que. gobsmacking graphics No. I rvfuM. I'm not going into that dark hole 

then you'll find them here. for anyone, not even the beautiful Dene... 



your man runs - he jus! docsn'i look macho 
enough. Sad to say, but when a game pits a 
large Conan ihe Barbarian-siyle man against 
some horribly vicious enemies, you expcci 
him lo run boldl) and confidently. Instead, he 
minces his way around the game, and it's only 
when he produces his sword that he begins 10 
look like a hero. 

This is only a small gripe. Ihough. because 
the fighting animation is excellent, particularly 
the motion blur on the sword, and the dvnamic 
movement as he turns UK) llashM 

Kick the habit 

The second, and most important, point is the 
low kick. This move is necessary to make 
mincemeat out of the shorter nasties, but it can 
be a little sluggish. You need to pull diago- 
nally downwards and press fia- to kick, and 
although it's fine at first, if you try to follow 
up with a second kick there is a slight, but sig- 
nificant, delay. Annoyingly. all the short 
enemies seem to hang around in groups of at 
least four, so even if you kill the first one, the 
second can gel you while you're still strug- 
gling with Ihe next kick. 

The last niggle is that the objects Ihe ene- 
mies fire at you can get confused with the 
scenery and detailed background graphics, but 
Thai ion have cot around the problem to some 
extent by making the poisonous blobs shim- 
mer as they fly towards you. 



liven taking these three points into consid- 
eration, we are left with one of the best 
platform bcat-em-ups ever - on console or 
computer. Switchblade 2 is its nearest Amiga 
rival, and graphically it knocks spots off that. 
It is bettered only by the likes of First 
Samurai, but then that is a pretty high bench- 
mark to be tested against. Yes. it seems 
Thalion have got a winner on their hands here. 
a graphical masterpiece with enough gameplay 
to keep you going for weeks on end - and 
that's just the first level...

Smash TV 




Nit* overhead views as people are splat* 
lered ketchup style. 



The Hit Squad ■ £7.99 ■ 061-832 6633 

The gameshow is a phenomenon 
of our times which points out 
the hopelessness of society and 
the bleak future awaiting us. 

Smash TV gives you a large 
weapon and a series of rooms to 
run through, collecting prizes. 
Stopping you are a vast number 
of people, machines and weird 
aliens among others. 

The game is viewed from 
overhead, and once you start 
playing you get the distinct feel 
of Llamatron (AF26 - 89 per 
cent). Each room looks the same 
when you enter it but before you've had time to draw, or even breathe, 
you'll be inundated with the, er, things which flood through the doors, 
intent on killing you and providing great entertainment for the folk watch- 
ing you on the telly. Your only hope is power ups and collectables. 
Spread-fire, revolving blades, smart bombs and more can all be yours as 
you rush around trying to shake off the nasties. Kill enough and you get 
more prizes and the chance to continue into the next room. 

It's brilliant - and there are no painful grieving families. The graphics 
aren't one of the game's strong points, nor is the sound. It's the gameplay 
that makes it. There's a starter of addictiveness, a main course involving 
that look-how-f ar-I've-got factor and for afters, 
a sumptuous scoop of double-choc have 
.mother-go. Nutritious and delicious. Right. 
Where's the coffee? 




Carnage 




Zeppelin ■ £7799 ■ 091-385 7755 

Moving swiftly and sure-foot- 
edly from trucks to cars, 
without even putting a foot on 
the ground, we come to 
Carnage. Another vertically 
viewed racing game. This time, 
you are in a car of microscopic 
proportions - it looks as if it's 
been ported from Sim Ant. 

Three other cars, which can 
be controlled by other players, 
are lined up on the diminutive 
grid, and the idea is to race 
round, which, 8ao7ands-like, is 
all fitted on to one screen. 
Controlling the vehicles is standard for this sort of game. You will nev- 
ertheless spend a fair amount of time bouncing off the walls, the other 
cars and finally off the screen (well, your skull will, as you get closer and 
dnif to it. trying to see what the hell is going on down there). 

The game is well programmed - the cars move in the bouncy sort of 
Tonka way you'll have seen many a time with this sort of thing. You stand 
a good chance of winning as long as you don't collide with anything. 

Despite all this, the game isn't bad, but it isn't very good either. You'll 
find yourself getting bored with it after a couple of circuits. And this bore- 
dom will increase until it engulfs your family, your road and finally the 
whole world. Can you afford to take this risk? 
Actually, the game is unlikely to do this, but it 
is uninteresting enough to warrant having 
this absurd joke made about it. 



A vague sense of originality prevents the 
words M25 from appearing in the caption.

International Truck Racing 

Zeppelin ■ £7.99 ■ 091-385 7755 

Surely people watch large vehi- 
cles racing in order to glimpse 
the mighty crashes which are 
bound to occur? Of course, 
nobody wants to see people get 
hurt, but who could resist see- 
ing a thunderous great Volvo 
tumbling like a spent match 
along the tarmac? 

This is where Zeppelin's 
game fails to deliver. It provides 
a top-down view of lots of lor- 
ries ambling around a circuit 
sliding at the corners and occa- 
sionally going on to the grass 
when things get misjudged. There's a bit of bumping and barging to con- 
tend with, but nothing which adequately sums up the raw power of the 
uncrowned 'kings of the road'. You can't even make them go 'psssss' 
loudly when you stop, like in real life. 

It's not sustaining entertainment to be honest. It's like Supercars but 
slower; possibly because trucks travel at less speed. There isn't any excite- 
ment. It's bereft of kicks. There's a gap in the market for a great game 
involving large HGVs hitting each other, smacking into unyielding station- 
ary things and ploughing through haybales like Dick Dastardly. 

Sadly, there are a great many games like International Truck Racing. 
Most are better, too. Aside from a few neat 
effects and a natty pre-menu bit where you 
see the trucks belting towards your helpless 
viewpoint it's not very good. 



Controlling a huge lorry is far easier than 
controlling Hugh Laurie. 




Video Kid 

GBH« £7.99 ■ 0742 753423 




This game was programmed entirely on 
location at Leeds Castle - lovely innit? 



About this time in the late, late 
evening, when all the children 
are tucked up in bed, a nice 
tumbler of Scotch is sitting com- 
fortably in front of the open 
fire, and the crumpets gently 
drip full-fat butter on to the 
tableclothed, nested occasional 
tables (Excuse me. but are you 
sure you're writing for the right 
magaiine? - Ed) your mind will 
turn to platform games (Phew - 
Ed). Especially ones in which 
you have the duel function of 
being able to fly as well as walk 
along the ground. Your quietly snoozing brain thinks of Video Kid. 

Video Kid is a sort of medieval, magic-type thing. You play a chubby 
little character who. while looking much like an accomplished wizard, is, in 
fact a bit of a git. Guided along by you, he seems fairly incapable of 
traversing the levels without having an inordinate amount of damage 
inflicted upon him. 

The game contains some very professional-looking graphics and each 
level is packed to the very tip-top with colour, most of it in the form of 
lethal traps, cannons and sort of alien things which do their best to see 
your energy dwindle. If you want a decent challenge, try this one. It's not 
bad and once you get the hang of it you'll be 
hooked for quite a while, depending on the 
obsessiveness of your personality and your 
need to win. 




BUDGET REVIEWS 



Hero Quest 



GBHl £7.99 10742 753423 

Under the mighty forest, hidden beneath the mountain and behind the 
closed oaken doors of the castle, people are hiding, playing this game. 

In essence, it's a sort of junior Eye of the Beholder. The idea, as always, 
is to vanquish a veritable coach-load of foes in combat of the most legiti- 
mate kind; with swords, axes and magic. 

You can play with several characters, and as you wander around each 
of the dungeons {there are about 20), you must defeat ever-more threaten- 
ing and numerous things, all of which are lifted straight from the board- 
game that made such a hit a few years ago. 

There's a nice feel to Hero Quest. It's got a dark, dank sort of atmo- 
sphere which is exactly as it should be. The problem lies with its essential 
sameness. Nothing really weird ever happens, and the baddies remain 
pretty standard throughout the game. 
This detracts slightly, but as an easily 
approachable role-playing game, it's 
got a lot going for it (an army of ores 
for a start).

International Tennis 

Zeppelin ■ £7.99 ■ 091-385 7755 

Do you 'love-all' tennis games? Or do you wonder why the 'deuce' people 
buy them? Is there an 'advantage' in (Stop it now - Ed). Anyway, this is 
actually one of the better ones, especially if you think most are a bit finicky 
about where you place your little character on the court. 

Here you've got something which has all the options you could want 
not a great deal of variety in the shots, and a certain amount of excite- 
ment. The problem with it lies in the fact that you can actually beat the 
computer with ease. 

This could well be part of the game's initial appeal, because it's 
immensely rare to beat any computer sports game first time out. But this, 
true enough, is an exception. 

The characters don't look terrify- 
ingly realistic, but who cares? They 
move quickly and you can play a 
decent game with them. Buy this if 
you're after some tennis-related fun. 





Wouldn't It be easier (and slightly more amusing) if you could just hit the 'return' 
key? Probably not come to think of it. 



Action Sport 

Microids/Daze ■ £29.99 ■ 071-328 2762 

Killerball 

This is Rollerball from off the telly. It 
lacks John Houseman or Bach's Toccata 
and Fugue in D minor (how's that for 
sad film knowledge?) but it does have 
the same rules and the violence. 

Well, not quite the violence. Some 
players knock each other over, but it 
isn't anything like the pain and suffer- 
ing inflicted during the movie. 
Remember when Moonpie (who was 
played quite admirably by John Beck) is 
knocked into a coma by Yishio 

Kozuma? Well that's not in here either. 

It's not bad, but there isn't a great deal of gameplay, and Speedball 2 

shows you exactly what this sort of game should be like. 




This is what Come Dancing will look 
like circa 2093. 



Superski 2 



** 



• 



i 



Not only downhill skiing, but bob- 
sleigh, slalom and a load of other 
things as well. You can go quickly, go 
slowly, crash into things and even take 
part in a tournament. It's endles fun 
for a short while. 

Things all happen against the 
clock, so you've got every incentive to 
keep bettering your times and improv- 
ing your social standing in Swiss 
alpine society. 

Other than that, there isn't a great 

deal to be said for it. Graphically it's not bad, playability-wise the same. 

Hardly earth-shattering, it's more like a light dusting of soft snow. 



Handy hint: skis double up as quite 
good crutches you know. 



Grand Prix 500 



Gremlin had a go at a bike simulator 
and made it very accurate, very vector- 
ish and bloody difficult to play. This 
game isn't any of the above. You tend 
to slide out to the corners a lot but at 
least the screen stays the right way up. 
You qualify, then race on loads of 
circuits that are spread very thinly 
across the world. Much as you'd 
expect, yours is the fastest bike, but 
because you're not controlled by a sili- 
con chip, you'll find yourself having to 
fight for position every inch of the way. 

Luckily the game boasts the best map, with the positions of the other 
bikes on it, that exists in any racing game. Hardly worth buying it for, but 
then again it's pretty fun anyway. The map is the icing on the cake, really. 




It's character-building, watching the 
rest of the pack stream past you. 



Advantage Tennis 




Dearie, dearie me. This game keeps on 
popping up all over the place. It's the 
one with the sad Olive Oyl characters 
who move incredibly realistically, but 
look, well, like Olive Oyl. It's not half 
as much fun as International Tennis 
unless you're very good at it. If you 
play it a lot then, naturally you'll 
become very good at it so perhaps, in 
the long run, it's better. 

The whole thing is a bit daunting 
to start off with, and the colours cho- 
sen are dismal in the extreme. Still, as 
Wordsworth wrote, "Tennis should be played by Swedes, as any vegetable 
concedes." Or maybe it was Blake. 

Overall, Action Sport is a varied and lightly flavoured meal. There isn't 
enough to fully satisfy you, but you won't walk away feeling empty, hol- 
low and generally laughed at by the 
programming fraternity. Buy it for 
Grand Prix 500 and maybe Superski 2. 



This court has been mown with a 
hover - it's less bover, apparently.

RBI 2 Baseball 

The Hit Squad ■ £7.99 ■ 061-832 6633 

Baseball, or rounders 
as we call it here, is 
the sort of game you 
just don't think of as 
worthy of a com- 
puter simulation. 
Well that's where 
you'd be making a 
tragic and heinous 
error, because RBI 2 
is a rather splendid 
game, successfully 
encapsulating every 
major facet of this 
ancient and mystical 
sporting artform. 
You can pitch, 
bat and field, plus 
each team from the 
NBA {or whatever) is represented, so you get the best people in the league 
making storming home runs or throwing insane no-hitters. 

Plenty of nice touches have been added. For example the electronic 
scoreboard is worth having a look at at least until you've seen all the ani- 
mations it can do (some will make you groan, such are the puns included). 

But on the down-side, the graphics aren't incredibly marvellous and 
there isn't quite enough to do to make this a classic. It also seems a bit 
arbitrary as to whether you miss the ball entirely or whack it right out of 
the ground. And the fielding involves moving the joystick in some very un- 
natural ways. 

These are minor gripes, though, and overall it's a good attempt at an 
exciting game, and once you've started to get good (a fairly time-consum- 
ing task) you'll be there for ages. Oh. and in 
case you're wondering, RBI stands for Runs 
Batted In. It's a statistic apparently. 




Thousands watch rounders in America. It's almost as big 
as that weird rugby variation they play. 




> Prince of Persia 

2 I Hit Squad ■ £7.99 ■ 061-832 6633 




Night has fallen over 
the Middle East. It's 
a silky, warm night 
typical of Arabia. 
The sort of night 
where passion and 
murder stalk the 
deserted dunes and 
duned deserts. The 
sort of night for a 
little poncy fellow 
with flowing hair 
and excellent anima- 
tion to try his luck at 
finding the princess 
captured in the 
tower of, er, cap- 
tured princesses. 

The game falls 
somewhere 
between a platformer and a puzzler. The main character (heralded as the 
best-animated sprite ever when he first appeared a couple of years ago) 
must dash around, arming himself and collecting the objects he needs to 
get up through the maze-like castle. It's full of Eastern promise, as Fry's 
once said. Prince of Persia can best be described as a late-night game, 
packed with atmosphere, piled high with frustration and steeped richly 
with reward for those who give it their best shot. 

The trouble is, it looks rather dated. Numerous other games have cot- 
toned on to the idea that detailed, flashy sprites with cute human 
characteristics are great and have done better. For historical purposes, ifs 
worth a look. As a big adventure, rt's a bit lim- 
ited but still worth a look. Perhaps through 
an attractive Eastern veil, just to be in 
keeping with the theme. Or perhaps not. 



But the big question is why this guy is wearing pyjamas 
- or is it a weird sort of romper suit. Who cares?

Hudson Hawk 

Hit Squad ■ £7.99 ■ 061-832 6633 





OOO J oooo 



sea 1 1 hi J 

02 ; *V5 



Here comes a cat-bur- 
glary game which 
will remind you of 
the flop film of the 
same name (you 
know the one with 
Bruce 'wasn't he at 
his best in 

Moonlighting' Willis). 
That's because it's an 
Ocean licence of the 
flop film of the same 
name. You must play 
Mr Hawk, who has to 
rush around the sky- 
line of any American 
city, killing folk and 
collecting things. 
There's a lot of 
nonsense about sculptures by da Vinci and Mirrored Crystals, which I'm 
sure was very important to the film, but all you need to know at this (or 
indeed any other) stage in the game is that Hudson Haw* is a pretty aver- 
age platformer. 

The graphics are bright and colourful, the difficulty is pitched about 
right and it's a lot of fun for those who are challenged by such things. 
Unique it is not nor is it going to change your life (unless you suffer amne- 
sia after accidentally tripping over the box and damaging your skull on the 
door-jamb). 

There are three levels, which doesn't sound much, but these are divided 
into smaller sub-bits, so you can't really say that you're being diddled on 
the game-play. Overall, it's nothing special, but neither is it a pile of... er, 
not very good. At this price it's far more 
appealing than at the full price, but don't 
you find that's always the way? 



At this resolution, the similarity to Bruce Willis is. er. 
not very apparent at all.

Robin Hood - 
Legend Quest 

CodeMasters ■ £7.99 ■ 0926 814132 

There's a free poster 
inside the box of this 
original game, but 
don't expect to see 
Kevin Costner (or 
Patrick Bergin film 
buffs). No. what in 
fact you get is a 
drawing of some 
smiling people in a 
woodland setting, 
which one presumes 
is Sherwood. 

The idea is sim- 
ple enough. Robin 
must rescue Marion, 
who is trapped inside 
a platform game. The 
Prince of Thieves 
must get through a 
castle to reach her, possibly enlisting the aid of the Prince of Persia who 
could be lost in the same castle looking for the same girt. 

It's neat simple, aimed at a younger audience (or user-ship as it should 
be) and it's absorbing. Well, for a platform game. The point is, how many 
more variations on platform games can there be? Well if you like your elec- 
tronic gaming fun to be based around legends of the Dark Ages, this is a 
game you shouldn't be without 

For the rest of us. though, you'll find that Robin is better than many, 
even though it suffers a bit from jerkiness. 
Perhaps ifs not worth getting if you've 
already got a lot of platform games. It's just 
another one, really. 




Cupid, draw bade your bow and shoot some git in the 
eye at extreme close range.

Here's the main loop of the code, the bit that checks which buttons have been clicked on. Once a 
Zone has been set up, it's so easy to find out what the person using your programs has selected - 
and it's much friendlier than relying on the keyboard. 






You've programmed games with your AMOS Coverdisk, now try your hand at a serious appli- 
cation - a database, which will also teach you some valuable programming techniques... 



105 



MANY PEOPLE WHO have been using their AMOS 
Coverdisk. and who have been following this series, 
should now be able lo design games on ihcir Amiga 
using this excellent programming language. Bui a lew 
people may be interested in producing something a lit- 
ile more serious. And whai could be handier than a 
small databank system eh? Bui ihe main point is thai 
apart from creating a handy liltle database, ii will help 
you learn certain programming techniques. Obviously. 
using the same techniques you could build a much 
larger database system, using the same mouse control 
and search facilities for storing and retrieving data, and 
even printing it out lo paper for a full report. 

The program you're going to create is simple in 
concept and function - it can accept a scries of names 
and phone numbers, sort them into alphabetical order 
and allow you to access each entry via the mouse. It's 
nol so much a database, w here retrieval and fast access 
to all entries is a priority - such a program would run 
lo about 10 pages worth of code. This database is just 
the bare bones of a program, and uses 'arrays' lo siore 
and manipulate the data (the names and numbers) that 
can be input at any one lime. 

To sort the names and numbers use the SORT key- 
word, a unique addilion lo AMOS which will sort the 
contents of an array from lowest lo highest: so 3, 5. 4. 
2. I becomes I. 2. 3, 4. 5 and B. E. C. . D. A becomes 
A. B. C. D. E. This example generates random letters 
and then sorts the into alphabetical order: 

Screen Open 0,640,200, 16, Hires 
Dim N$(25) 
Locate 0,0 
For A=0 To 25 

N$(A)=Chr$(Rnd(25)*65) 



Print NS(A);' "; 
Next A 
Sort NS(0) 
Locate 0,5 
For B=0 To 25 

Print NS(B);" »; 
Next B 

This code is basically how ihe son works. Sort is very 
last, it can son 50 entries in about 0.22 seconds, on an 
unacccleraicd A2(KK). Once your dimension arrays, fill 
them wiih text and son (hem into alphabetical order so 
ihal you can search them using the MATCH keyword, 
and then print out the results of your search. 

Are you DIM? 

Arrays arc very useful variables which can store large 
amounts of dala which is somehou linked. Arrays are 
best thought of as pigeon holes at a post office. Before 
you can start loading dala inio an array, you have lo 
dimension it. Arrays can have as main dimensions as 
you want them to. for example if you type: 

Dim NUO) 

you will have created an array with 10 locations ready 
to be Tilled. Imagine a row of 10 empty boxes wailing 
to have something pui inio them. If you lype: 

Dim N<10,10> 

ihis represents a row of ten boxes, bui this lime you 
should iry and imagine a row of boxes 10 wide and 10 
deep, containing 100 locations in which you can put 
dala. So if you lype: 



Dim NUO, 10,10) 

You have a 3D array with 10 wide. 10 deep and 10 
long, or a huge cube. (Note: it's bit hard 10 imagine a 
pigeon-hole system which would enable you to put 
anything into the boxes in ihe centre of the cube, but 
this is computing, where anything is possible!) That's 
10 x 10 x 10 boxes which equals 1.000 locations into 
which you can put data. 

In these examples you can only put numbers inio 
ihcsc arrays, because they have no $ symbol after the 
name. So for names and numbers you should dimen- 
sion an alphanumeric (characters rather than numbers, 
think alphabetic) array like so: 

Dim NS(IO) 

for 10 names. Simple. The same rules for normal vari- 
ables apply. 

AF DataBank 

The Utile DataBank watches and calculators are great 
fun. and very handy if you've got the memory of a 
goldfish. Rather than write down all your phone num- 
bers, you can load them into Ihcsc units and they arc 
automatically sorted into alphabetical order, and you 
can step through Ihem using the back and forward keys 
on ihe front of the unit. 

This month's program is a Databank simulator, 
which performs all the same functions of these units 
using AMOS. In order lo create a simulation of these 
items, first think about how the program will look on 
the screen. Because no graphics screens have been 
loaded, create your own screen graphics using AMOS 
commands. The screen is created using a procedure

called .DATASCREEN. which starts like this: 

Procedure _DATASCREEN 

The procedure is opened and given a name with an 
underscore character at the front, so call the proc what- 
ever you like. Next set the paper colour to colour 8 of 
the default palette, which is one ol the three greys 
(colour 7. X and l )) and clear the screen: 

Paper 8 : CIs 

Next set the ink colour to 2 (while) and print the title 
of the screen at the lop of the screen: 

Ink 2 

Print -Databank" 

This is a bit small and puny, so try and ZOOM it up 
in size: 

Zoom 0.0,0,84.8 To 0,60,10,319,50 
Locate 0,0 : Cline 

The ZOOM keyword takes an area from a specified 
screen and magnifies it. placing it on another screen 
which you specify. In this case zooming up an area of 
screen on to screen 0. The first is the screen being 
zoomed from. 0.0 is the top left corner of the zoom 
area, and 84.8 is the bottom right. 

This invisible box encloses the text that >ou typed 
and prepares it to zoom. The next bit of the command 
after the TO states that you are printing the zoomed 
area to screen 0. and this lime the top left comer will 
be 60.10 and the bottom righi 319.50. 

After a little experimentation you will find this 
will position the magnified area clear of the original 
text, and it will also centre it on ihe top of Ihc screen. 
After you've zoomed, erase the original text with a 
locate call to the top left comer of the screen, and a 
clear line or CLINE command. 

Next draw the buttons. These sit at the bottom of 



the screen, and their positions are worked out by 
dividing the width of the screen by 7 and coming up 

with 45. 

The buttons and the spaces between Ihcm are all 

multiples of 45 to give \ou three buttons, evenly 
spaced. The height ol the buttons is the difference 
between 170 and 190. the Y axis numbers on all three, 
which means thai each button is exactly 20 pixels high.

Box 45,170 To 90,190 

Box 135,170 To 180,190 

Box 225,170 To 270,190 

The buttons are first made by drawing a rectangle with 
BAR in ink 9. and then bounded by a box using BOX 
in ink 2. The text in the buttons is done using graphic 
text, rather than the usual kind, to ensure that the text 
can be positioned cxactl) in the box. 

Ink 2,9 : Text 62.183.-<- 
Text 152,183,->- 
Text 233, 183, -Quit- 
So the buttons are now graphically represented on the 
screen. In order for you to be able to sense the buttons 
with the mouse, you should set up zones around them 
with the SET ZONK command. This is simply a matter 
of draw ing an invisible box around the buttons so that 
later you can ask the program to check if they are 
being 'pressed'. The zones arc easy to set as the co- 
ordinates arc identical to those used to produce the 
buttons: 

Set Zone 1,45.70 To 90,190 
Set Zone 2,135,170 To 180,190 
Set Zone 3,225,170 To 270,190 



Zone I is the button marked <. zone 2 is the button 
marked > and the last zone is the button called Quit. 

These zones must be reserved at the beginning of 
the program for them to work, so you have to add a 
slum statement: 

Reserve Zone 3 

at the front. This allocates 3 zones for the use of the 
program. 

Next you want to have a window in (he middle of 
the screen. To ensure that no text spills out of the win- 
dow to spoil your screen (should anything go wrong in 
the program) you can limit the flow of text to an area 
of the screen called a window . First you draw a bar and 
box for the window to sit on. 

Ink 9 

Bar 10,60 To 309,160 

Ink 2 

Box 10,60 To 309,160 

This sits on the screen in the centre below the title and 
above the buttons. To limit the text to an area of the 
screen you open a window within the area you've just 
draw n on screen. 

Paper 6 

Wind Open 1,20,65,36,11 

The paper colour is set to 6 (blue) and you open win- 
dow 1 starting at screen coordinate 20.65. The window 
is set to be 36 characters long by II tall. (If you 
wanted to have more information in the window you 
have to SCREEN OPEN a hi-rcs screen before you 
stan. giving you room for twice as many characters.) 

The next bit is a little special effect. The screen 
fills with random text and then clears with the CLW 
command and prints up the words *Amiga Formal 
DataBank'.

And thai is ihe basic screen setup. AH the graphics 
commands were arrived at by a mixture o\ thoughl and 
planning, with a little bit of trial and error thrown in 
for good measure. Try a box on screen and see if it 
looks right. If it doesn't then go back to the editor and 
do it again adjusting the figures a little. 

The other procedure in the program is ihe 
_ENTHRDATA subroutine, and this siniplv lake the 
lines of data from the keyboard and stores ihem in an 
array called NAMESSO. 

Procedure _ENTERDATA 
Shared NAMESSO 

This opens the procedure and tells the proc that the 
array NAMESSO has actually been defined at the 
beginning of the program. All variables are local to 
various parts oi the program unless you specifically 
loll the program that they are to be shared or global. 

Next you take in the entries and store them into 
the array:

TECH HELP 

If you have any problems with your AMOS disk or 
technical problems with AMOS itself, phone 
Europress Software on (0625) 859333 and ask for 
the Technical Help Dept. 

Additional software support is available from 
the AMOS Club, 1 Lower Moor, Whiddon Valley, 
Barnstaple, North Devon, EX32 8NW. Send them 
your name and address, and £12 per year (£15 
overseas) and you'll get six issues of the newslet- 
ter full of AMOS hints and tips, a regular disk of 
goodies, plus a technical help phone number you 
can call to help you figure out any problems you 
have with your AMOS programs. 

Club members also qualify for discounts on 
AMOS software, particularly Shadow Software 
and delightful games like AMOS TOME 4, CFm r 2 
and SpriteX 2. 



prompting you lo inpul the data. As the variable 
ENTRIES is incremented each lime the loop goes 
around, the next pigeonhole in the array is filled with 
the next bit of data typed in at the keyboard. When the 
loop is finished, when all 20 holes are filled, the com- 
puter should say that all are filled. This is done simply 
by printing the line lhat all data banks are full in the 
centre of the window. (Note lhat all screen printing and 
centring commands arc now referring to the window 
and not the whole screen.) 

So now you have a filled array. This array is then 
sorted using the command: 

Sort NAMESS (0) 

which sorts the named array from smallest lo largest. 
All your entries, names and numbers are sorted by the 
first letter. You must be sure to add no punctuation to 
the entry or any odd characters - just in case this dis- 
rupts the sort procedure. Every entry must Ik* on a 
single line. 

All that remains is the main body of Ihe program, 
which runs everything. Having set up the screen and 
entered the data you are ready to use the DahiBtink for 
accessing names. 

As well as the reserve /one line, you also have to 
dimension the arrav NAMESS and set a variable called 
"choose* to 0. 

Dim NAMESS (20) 
CHOOSE=0 

Follow with calls to the procedures you've written: 

_DATASCREEN 
_ENTERDATA 

ihen you're ready for the main loop. At the start of the 
main loop, you have a little series ot tests to see which 
button on screen you have clicked on with the mouse. 

If Mouse Key and Mouse Zone=l 

Dec CHOOSE 
End If 
It Mouse Key and Mouse Zone=2 

Inc CHOOSE 
End If 
If Mouse Key and Mouse Zone=3 Then End 

If the left mouse button is pressed and the mouse 
pointer is in /ones one or two. then the variable 
CHOOSE is INCrcmented (added) or Decremented 
(subtracted* to give you the next or previous entry in 
our little database. The following lines: 

MORE AMOS 

If you want to know more about AMOS, it's a 
good idea that you get the manual and examples 
disk (to go with your FREE copy of AMOS) from 
our mail order department on Pages 150-152. If 
you don't have the issue with the free copy of 
AMOS on the cover, then why not order that too 
from Back Issues? 

There are also a number of books on the topic 
out at the moment like Phil South's Mistering 
Amiga AMOS (Bruce Smith Books), a good basic 
beginner's guide. On a higher level there's the 
excellent Amiga Game Maker's Manual by 
Stephen Hill (Sigma Press 0923 53103S) and also 
one by Totally AMOS authors Len and Anne 
Tucker, called AMOS In Action (Kuma Computers 
0734 844335). 



li CH0OSE>20 Then CHOOSE=20 
: i/iiOOSE<l Then CHOOSE=l 

Check to see if the entries you've chosen push the 
CHOOSE variable above 20 or below I. which are 
both outside the array's range. If this is the case then 
the variable is stopped at the lowesi point.

NAMESS (CHOOSE) 



Cline 



Print 



Now you come to the line which prints the chosen 
entries on screen. Each time the loop goes around the 
cursor locales to location 1.5. clears the line and then 
prints up the current entry. As you 'inc* and "dec' the 
CHOOSE variable with the on-screen buttons. Ihe 
entry changes. 

A 20 click wait is put in the end or the loop goes 
around too last causing a flicker. This means you to 
have to let your mouse linger on the button before the 
button press gets sensed by the loop, but it's a small 
price to pay for a more controllable loop. Wait 20 
is only 2/5ths of a second though, so don't worry 
too much. 

Wait 20 

Goto MAINLOOP 

The lasi line sends you back to the label MAINLOOP. 
and the entire process starts again. The button is 
sensed, and the CHOOSE variable is moved back 
and forth. 

Program Enhancements 

The program can be improved in a number of ways, 
which you might like to try and do yourself as an exer- 
cise. Firstly you can use the MATCH keyword to 
search for a certain letter at the beginning of the entry. 
So you could load up all ihe entries beginning with S. 
for instance. 

Also you could load a graphics screen with a more 
exotic design on it. You could also add more buttons 
for more functions, like time and date, and also add .i 
loading and saving numbers feature to save you having 
lo type them in all the time. Or how about automati- 
cal!) loading ihe numbers on startup and automatically 
saving them (along with any new ones) at the end? 

The loading and saving arrays is achieved by sav- 
ing the arra\ data as a tile to disk, or loading it FROM 
disk into an array. The simplest way of doing this is to 
use the sequential files feature (which will be covered 
at a later date). If you want to go ahead and try it any- 
way, read the bit in the AMOS manual about sequential 
Tiles. You just open a channel to the disk: 

Open Out 1, "names. seq" 

For A=0 To 20 

Print Bl, NAMESS (A)

Nick Faldo's Golf 

The tricky control system can be best 
mastered by following these tips. 

Don't concentrate too hard on wrist 
snap - concentrate on the double-click 
more (wrist snap only adds 10 per cent 
more power). 

Get used to less difficult clubs first 
such as the three wood with its larger 
strike bar. 

Sleepwalker 

To find COMIC: C Is above the shop 
canopy and to the left of the Nite club; 
is past the bouncer: M is past the sewer 
water to the left I is up and to the left 
past the telegraph cable above the car 
and C is along the top right of the map. 
Secret passage: Pick up the beard near 
the first C, go to the sewer exit near the 
traffic lights, hit the four arrows. Go 
through the sewer to the right. 

Trolls 

Enter Sodapop level, but before hitting 
fire, push up on the joystick and hold 
down K while pressing the fire-button 
to begin the level. Release the key only 

when the level has started. Now press 
Escape to complete the level. 



STREETFIGHTER 2 




Fiendishly difficult, these thunderbolts, 
but damned effective! 



Select one player mode, 
then wait for the char- 
acter selection screen. 
Place the cursor on 
Blanka, but don't press 
the fire-button to select 
him. Now type in 
PATIENCE, and the 
screen should flash. If 
you now start the game 
using any character, you 
can press F10 to restore 
your energy to full.

Here's an example code: 
14631 100BC 

AB022 47tQA 

The first five digits represent your placings in races, in this case that's first fourth, 
sixth, third and first. To progress you must finish within the first five, so the trick in 
creating your code is to make all the digits less than five, but make sure that your plac- 
ings add up to the original total. Change the sixth to a fourth, then make one of your 
firsts a third, so your code should now read 14433, and hey presto! When you enter 
your code you will be promoted to the next level.

PREMIER MANAGER 

Want to know how to improve the capabilities of your football team? Cunning use of the telephone in this rather excellent 
football management game could bring you riches beyond belief - if you follow our guidelines direct from Gremlin... 



By dialling any of the following numbers into the 
telephone, you will be able to improve your 
team's capabilities. These cheats will only work on 
the first player in a particular position, so if you 
want a strong strike force you must enter the cor- 
responding number, move your striker out of his 
position, then re-enter the cheat. 

The cheats will change the player's names. 



but you can use the 'change name' facility to 
change them back. 

When starting a new game enter four names 
your own, and three dummy ones. Enter the ROF 
Cheat on the three dummy teams, then sell your 
players to the dummy teams for £20,000,000 a 
time. Buy players from the dummy teams for the 
minimum asking price, then make each fictional 



manager hand in their resignation in front of the 
board. Eventually you'll have a team full of the 
best players, and a bank balance of over 
£60,000,000! 

You might not be quite ready to take on the 
might of your AC Milan's, Barcelona's or Real 
Madrid's, but you'll certainly see an improvement 
out on the park.

GAME TIPS 





Last month's GameBusters covered the travels of Brandon across the first 

three levels of this excellent fantasy adventure. But if you're still having trouble, 

then here's the solution to the final two chapters, leading to the defeat of the evil Malcolm... 



1 10

O 





You too can be transformed into a flying horse. 
Personally. I prefer to just nip down The Flying Horse. 

You should now be inside Faericwood. Wander 
around uniil you are knocked out by a falling 
iree branch - ihis could happen ai any poini in 
the woods. Zanthia the Alchemist will appear and drag 
you off to her laboratory and then wake you up. 

Zanthia will discuss the slate of your quest, and 
ask you to retrieve some magic water from the foun- 



tain. Go ai'i in search of it, bin make sure you take a 
flask with you. When you get there you will be 
accosted by Malcolm again. He will be unusually 
pleasant, and will (inly break the fountain by removing 
one of the crystal orbs. 

To repair the fountain, you must retrieve the orb 
from the Flaming Tree. Freeze the tree first by reading 
Darm's scroll, then pick up the orb and replace it in the 
Fountain. It will rejuvenate, and you will be able to fill 
one of the flasks you found in Zanthia's laboratory. 
Drinking some of the water will activate the blue gem 
on your amulet, and enable you to perform some minor 
enchantments. 

When you return to the laboratory, Zanthia will 
tell you about your royal heritage, give you some clues 
about the powers of her potions, and then ask you to 
get her some blueberries to mix into a potion which 
might help you. 

The blueberries can be found at the Sparkling 
Waterfall. When you return from there. Zanthia will be 
gone. The rug on the floor will be rumpled, and if you 
explore further you will find a trap-door that leads to 
an area of Faericwood behind Zanihia's home. 

The main problem facing you within Faericwood 



is in making potions. You can make red. blue and yel- 
low potions by placing specific ingredients into the 
cauldron. A flower and a gemstone of the same colour 
will usually produce a potion of that colour, so a blue- 
berry and a blue gem will yield a blue potion, while a 
yellow tulip and a topaz or an emerald will make a yel- 
low potion. The exception to this particular rule is 
purple - a purple rose and a purple amethyst will not 
yield a purple potion. 

Some of the gems can be found in Faericwood. but 
you may have to retrace your previous steps to get all 
the potions you need. To make a red potion, explore 
beyond the trap-door where you will find the tropical 
lagoon containing red orchids. 

In the woods behind Zanthia's house, you will find 
the Crystals of Alchemy. These crystals enable you to 
mix different colours of potions to produce a desired 
cocktail. Mixing is easy - if you put a blue potion in 
one slot, and a red potion in the other, a purple potion 
will be produced. In much the same way. red and 
yellow potions may be mixed to produce a useful 
orange potion. Watch out. though, because green 
potions are poisonous... 

Once you have mastered the art of potion making, you 
must use your skills to get the Royal Chalice. This can 
be located hovering in the air near the fountain, and 
may be released by using the blue gem from your 
Amulet. The chalice still isn't yours, however, because 
a tiny faun will scamper by and pinch it. Chase the 
faun to his house. Before you enter however, you will 
need to drink a purple potion so that you can fit inside 
his front door. 

Inside the faun's home, negotiate a trade in order 
to get the chalice back. The faun is only interested in 
apples, so if you still have the apple from Kallak's 
trechouse in part one. you should be OK. If you were 
greedy and ate the apple earlier, you'll have to scout 
around outside the labyrinth to find a second. 
What's that? You mean you ate that as well? Blimey! 
Fortunately for you. there's another one lurking around 
somewhere in the woods behind Zanthia's - this may 
not be there at first, but keep wandering around and it 
will appear eventually. 

Right, got the chalice? Then you must make your 
way to the castle. Before you go there, make sure that 
you have everything you need - the key, the Royal 
Chalice and a flower - because there's no way back. 
To get to the castle, you need to make your way across 
the water near the Tropical Lagoon. Stand on the small 
circular platform, drink an orange potion, and before 
you know it you'll be polymorphically tweened into a 



GAME TIPS 



beautiful winged Pegasus, which automatically flics 
10 the castle. 

Danger points: as well as the poisonous green 
potion, there are a couple of other dangerous situations 
in Facnewood to watch out for. Just outside /anthia's 
door there is a huge frog sitting in the swamp with only 
his eyes showing: get loo close and he will cat you. 
Also, if you try and float across the water using the 
will-o-wisp ability, you will K? eaten b> a large fish 
that's extremely partial to wisps. 

B> the way. both ol these deaths arc rather amus- 
ing to see. so it"s worth saving your game before they 
happen, and then wading in... 




After landing and changing back into your human 
form, you should discover the graves of your parents. 
Place the flower on the grave, and the ghost of your 
mother will appear, telling you that you need the chal- 
ice to defeat Malcolm. (This advice is a bit silly, really, 
because you can't return to Faericwood to gel it. This 
means if you don't have the chalice now. you must 
reload a previously saved position and stall again from 
there. Advice such as this should be inserted at the cor- 
rect position in the game, or left out altogether). Your 
mother will also activate the red Amulet gem. which 
enables you to become invisible for a short lime. 

When you arrive ai the castle gate, you will find 
it's guarded by two gargoyles who will spit acid at you 




al the drop of a hat (see final paragraph of Chapter 
Four). You must use the red Amulet gem to make 
yourself invisible before you approach them. Use the 
kc\ in the lock, then walk in. 

Once inside, ignore Malcolm's house rules, and 
locate the Royal foyer at the far end of the Great Hall. 
You'll need to find iwo keys which unlock the doors: 
the first may be found in the catacombs, while the 
other is upstairs in the Music Room. 

To enter the catacombs, find the library, then stand 
on the revolving fireplace. Al the far end of the cata- 
combs >ou will encounter a I-'oice Field which ma\ lv 
removed by using ihe blue Amulet gem. Several rooms 
beyond this there is a rock on the floor, under which 
you will find a golden key. After using the Blue gem. 
you will need to wait a few minutes until the effect has 
worn off before you can activate the will-o-wisp gem 
lo explore ihc catacombs with lull illumination. 




In the hallway near ihe music room, you will meet 
Merman for the second time. This lime, though, he's 
under Malcolm's influence, and he will attempt to 
return the saw to you by cutting you into small pieces. 
You can make Herman sleep by activating the yellow 
Amulet gem. 

To gel ihe second key. play 'Do-Fa-Mi-Re' on ihe 
bells (that's bottom, top. second-to-top and second-to- 
bottom >. and the key will appear from behind a picture. 

Get the Sceptre from the kitchen, then go and gel 
ihe Crown from the reverse side ol ihe icwiKing lire- 
place in the library. To expose the reverse side, you 
musi pull out four books from the shelves in a specific 
order. You will find thai four books begin with the let- 
ters O. P. E and N - which, surprisingly, spell 'OPEN*. 
Cunning, eh.' 

As un added bonus, it's worth your while wandering 
around the bedrooms and taking a look at the different 
things you find - none are essential to the plot, but 
the\ can be funnv. 

When you open the Royal Foyer, place the 
Sceptre, ihe Crown, and then the Chalice on the red 
cushions in the alcoves - and make sure they are in 
that order. This will open the door to the Chamber of 
the Kyragem. where you will again meet the cruel 
Malcolm. Brandon will now punch Malcolm and 
knock him out. Hooray! 

Go into the room with the Kyragem and then posi- 
tion yourself in front of the mirror on the right-hand 
side. You must then turn yourself invisible before 
Malcolm enters the room and casts the 'iurn-to-sione' 
spell. If all goes swimmingly, the spell will hit the mir- 
ror instead of you. and then rebound and hit Malcolm, 
turning him to stone. This is now ihe end for Malcolm, 
and so Kallak is freed, and you've just completed ihe 
Legend of Kyrandia - congratulations! 



OH NO! 
IT'S THE PATHETIC TIPS! 

We have an extraordinary bunch of crap tips 
for you this month, readers. First up I must 
mention the flood of letters we have received 
containing level codes for US Gold/Delphine's 
Flashback. Nice work, guys, but don't you 
realise that the game isn't actually on sale 
until April? Has anyone told you that copying 
games isn't clever or hard? Slapped wrists all 
round, I think. 




Flashback, the most evasive gamo on the planet, 
seems to be the target for several pirates... 

Right moralistic issues and preaching out 
of the way, let's get on with some seriously 
awful hints. Here's a tetter from Graham 
Kavenagh of Dublin: 

"To get the Gremlin cheat one, (the one 
that's on screenshots) simply phone Gremlin! 
You get the equivalent of Packie Bonner! Great 
innit? t can't get a defence for Liverpool 
though!" Er, thanks Graham. But what the hell 
are you talking about? And what's Packie 
Bonner got to do with anything? 

Bizarre tip of the month goes to Jon Wilcox 
of Ashton under Lyne, who writes: 

"In Shadow of the Beast 3, when the 
spikes are about to kill the monster, pause the 
game and type in the fab words 'Amiga Format 
Speciat for unlimited energy." 100 per cent for 
effort, Jon, but (yes, you guessed it) it doesn't 
work. Strange, that. 




The Shadow hides behind a cunning piece of 
scenery. Wouldn't you? 

The height-of-cheek award for April has to 
go to Samantha and Gareth Evans of 
Chessington, who sent in a sheet of tips for 
our perusal. Hmmm, sounds interesting. Until, 
that is, you find that the sheet is made up of 
photocopied cheats from another magazine, 
cut up and pasted on! Incredible! Still, it takes 
all sorts I suppose... 

That's all for this month, folks. Keep the 
tips a-rollin' in! The weirdest tips printed 
might just might win an exclusive Amiga 
Format enamel badge. These exclude the kind 
of tips which we know are contrived, much like 
the Vou've Been Framed school of video cre- 
ation, where people set up accidents on video 
just to see themselves on telly. These sort of 
tips will not be tolerated (unless they really 
make us laugh, of course).

A} STARTPOINT 

Characiers start at the ground level al I.I. Begin 
preparing them by selecting a weapon from each of 
their individual stores. 

B) PUSHABLE BLOCKS 

Al 1.2 is a panicle beam rifle. This is most useful in 
the Firelight later on. Use the pushable blocks from 1.3 
to bridge the gap from 1.4 to 1.5. Ammunition for this 
can be found later on. 



ci 

Go through the door at 1 .6 and down the stairs. Around 
the corner and through the door, two Skeletons will be 
active with a third emerging. Kill them. With the key 
al 2.1 go through the nearby door and down the stairs. 




Move down lo 4.1. Al the botiom of the stairs, two 
creatures called Leahdiles will be wailing. The door 
directly ahead is locked so turn right. This is the main 
room where all the puzzles converge. 

E) CO-OPERATIVE 

VENTURE 

Take two characters through the door at 4.2 and down 
the stairs. This puzzle needs two characters to co-oper- 
ate. Move one character up lift onto the ledge. The 
remaining character has to move the two pushable 
blocks one by one onto the lift and up to be received at 




the top. The character at the top will use these 10 fill in 
the gap. There are only two blocks in that room, three 
will be required. Get an extra block from the main 
room at 4.1. Once the gap is filled, pick up the key. 
This will allow you part access to the main turbo lift. 

F) THE EGG ROOM 

Send an armed character through ihe tcleport at 4.6 
into the room at 4.7. Collect the Psi-amp at the end of 
the room then leave by the south tcleport at 4.8. If 
you're quick, you won't need to fire. The Psi-amp is 
used to create a bridge in front of whoever 'casts' it. 

G) BRIDGE BUILDING 

Use this Psi-amp to bridge the gap at 4.9 and collect 
the key at 4.10. Be careful to use the Psi-Amp twice as 
there is a gap of two blocks. (Experienced - or fool- 
hardy - users can take a short cut by not bridging the 
gap and falling down instead. Also, the Psi-amp 
charges saved can be used to get the ammo for the 
beam rifle at l.7.| Conserving the beam rifle ammo 
until later will give you a belter chance of surviving. 

H) TURBO LIFT 

At 4.3. there is the other key required for the lurbo lift 
at 4.4. The lift will take the characters back to ground 
level bui you should find some interesting items there. 
Pick up all you can then head back down the lift to 4. 1 . 

1} WATER 

Send two characters down the lifl at 4.5. Ideally CIM 
should be one of them since he can't drown. Equip him 
with a DTS if possible. Find your way through the 
maze to the lifl at 5.1. Send a character up the lift to 
pick up a key (this key will be needed later). Bring 
everyone back to 4.1. Take a heavily armed and 
armoured character up the stairs at 4.1 1. There are two 
Leahdiles al the top who shool fireballs. Once dis- 
patched, collect food and medicine from 3.1 and 3.2. 

J) TEUERORTERS 

Head down the stairs at 3.3. This room has three rows of 
teleports crossing it. Step on 4.12 then 4.13. Go through 
any of the two doors. As you approach a gap in the 
floor, a block will fall. Use the Bridge Psi-amp lo gel 
across ihe gap and fetch the key al 4.14. pull the block 
back from the door across the bridge to reveal the door 
(or get another character to push the block from behind). 




K) AMMUNITION 

Some extra ammunition can be had in room 4.15 
through the teleport al 4.16. To leave this room press 
the button at 4. 1 7 to reveal a hidden passage at 4. 1 8. 

L) THE BIG FIRE FIGHT 

You now have access to the exit enable switch at 3.4. 
Move your characters to this room. When this switch is 
pressed ihe barrier at 3.5 will be disabled. Your charac- 
ters will be faced with a horde of leahdiles. From 3.6. 
keep firing up the corridor and take out as many as you 
can from as far away as possible. Don't gel impatient. 
It is possible to lay proximity mines (if you have them) 
- so the Leahdiles will walk into them - before activat- 
ing the exit switch. 

M) AFTER THE BATTLE 

If \ou are fortunate and the Leahdiles are dead, then 
proceed lo 3.7. Use the medical supplies here. Use one 
of the blocks on the lifts nearby to fill in the gap at 3.8. 
Cross ihe neatly filled gap to reach the exit at 3.9.

GAME TIPS 





Oh my god! You're not still stuck on the games that you got for 
Christmas are you? Finding that end-of-level guardian just a bit too tricky? In that case, you 
may need some help from Andy Nuttall and his unfeasibly large Helping Hands... 




Level five or not Level five? 
That is the question. 



MOTHER MAYHEM 

Help! We're going 
crazy! We've been 
stuck on the same 
level of Lemmings 
(mayhem level five) 
for months now, 
and we can see no 
way out. Please 
help us if you can. 
Mrs J Garland 
Hayling Island 
As the first lemming reaches the left of the 
first platform make him dig down. Let seven or 
eight lemmings fall after him, then stop the 
rest with a blocker. Dig through the rest of the 
platforms in an erratic path, to prevent them 
from falling too far. 

As the first lemming falls on to the bottom 
level, he will begin to walk right - set him as a 
blocker, so the rest bump into him and walk 
left instead. Then set the second in the line as a 
blocker when he's beneath the overhang in the 
middle of the level - so the first lemming con- 
tinues to the left. As he approaches the 
left-hand platforms, make him build a bridge 
up to the first platform. 

At the leftmost point of the platform, turn 
him into a blocker. Blow up the last blocker to 
allow the lower lemmings to get to the bridge. 
As a lemming approaches the blocker turn him 
into a builder, then the builder will hit the 
blocker mid-build and change direction. Repeat 
this until you reach the exit then release the 
others by blowing up the blocker. 

Phew! I hope that's helped you Judy.

Dead tree scrolls 

For Christmas I was kindly given a cop) of lleimdall. 
the thing is I am having severe amounts of trouble get- 
ling oil the first island of Midgard. I have placed the 
diamond and milestone on to the receptacle which 
is hanging from the tree, but what is the third item

Also, how do you decipher the scroll found in the

Mr P Millard

The tender which is mentioned m this vase is legal 

lender, m money, so pm the silver coin into the 

receptacle In return you will get the spell to kill the 

evil Seamonster,

In Pepl) to Robert Booth's query about Core Design's 
excellent Premiere (/1F43 - 89 per cent). I would like- 
to tell you the secret of the Bulldog's linger move- 
ments. Watch his hand, and when lie has moved his 
fingers three limes ii means he will reach lor his gun - 
so shoot as quickly as possible. 

NeXI nine, he will fire al you alter moving his fin- 
gers five times. and finally tour times. By anticipating 
all of his quick -draws in this way. you should always 

manage to kill him. 

Martin Keen 
Southampton 

Thanks, Martin. I must admit that although I fought 
and heal the Bulldog, I didn't realise thai tins 

pattern existed! 

Bat n' bald 

Although I have come \er> close io finishing Fire and 
Ice, I Still encounter the same problem on the third 
Temple level. I often cannot complete the ke> , despite 
managing to kill everything in sight. I have even 
found the secret room, but this doesn't help. There 
doesn't seem to be any pattern between completing 
and nol completing the key - and soon I will have vir- 
tually no hair left! 




Hang on. haven't we been here before? It seems that the 
old Shadow Is still cowering behind that scenery... 

Also, why does the score sometimes go com- 
pletely nuts.' Do we have a bug? 

Nan (?) 
Yelveston 

Unfortunately, your question is a hit vague - we need 
to know the mime oj the pan you're stuck on, because 
the third level could in reality he either the third or the 

fourth level. Anyway, Andy Braybrook of Graftgold 

offers you the following tip: "Assuming you're actually 
on the third level, pari of the key held by the hat < an he 
uncovered h\ shunting the snowcloud or the ice crystal 
boll You may even get one by shooting an ice blink if 
you're lucky I hope this helps." Thanks. Andy. 

Festive gardens 

Could you help with Curse of Enchant ia? I don't know 
how to pass the green man - I only have a paper clip 
and a money bag left. When I press LOOK. I gel a pic- 
ture of a big green loot - this is driving me up the wall! 

Mrs G Officer 
Hartlepool 

You should have a match and a matchbox at this point. 
so if you haven't, retrai e your steps and get them. Sow 
hide behind the pillar, then wait for the troll to fall 
asleep. Run up to his foot, stick the match into it then 
strike if! The troll "ill lump out of the way. so pick up 
the foe extinguisher, and wait for Mr Ben to appear. 
Thanks to Darren /'rice of Derby for the tip,

SERIOUS REVIEWS 






Amiga Format has been voted magazine most influencing 
buying decisions' by dealers in trade magazine Computer 
Trade Weekly tor three years running. That's because they 
know our reviews are the most trustworthy; what we say, you 
seem to agree with. 

lis simple enough, it's because a) we know what we're 
talking about, and b) we're honest. We know what you want, 
because we're Amiga enthusiasts ourselves. And because 
we're Amiga experts, we test everything to the full and see 
how it performs. 

If something is let down by poor features. If it's difficult to 
use, or if it's overpriced, we'll tell you. But on the other hand. 
If It's well worth the price, or does something amazing, 
we'll make you aware of the fact - and look out for the 
Amiga Format Gold award which distinguishes a truly excel- 
lent product, one that really stands out from the crowd. £?

IMAGE FX 




Well not that serious! You can still have a whole lot of fun 

with some of the new releases on the following pages. 

Marcus Dyson tantalises you with what's in store... 



Hardware 

GVP A1230 

The A1200 is no slouch, but real speed freaks are always 
after more speed, more power! And one way to get more 
power from your A1200 is to stuff a really fast processor 
on the CPU bus in the trapdoor. Enter GVP and their 
Motorola 68030 with a clock speed of 40 Mhz. Add up to 
32 Mb of fast RAM and you have the kind of A1200 that 
makes the A3000 look average, is it within the reach of 
the common man? Turn to... Page 1 28

* HD 

Last month we told you some of the benefits of owning a 
hard drive, and reviewed a few new machines, this 
month we have a new arrival from Alfa Data. The 
AlfaPower HD seems likely to be the cheapest A500 HD 
on the market, but what do you get for the money? See If 
It's an incredible bargain on... Page 1 30 




Multimedia 



Aiming for the crown currently 
worn by Art Department 
Professional, Gold Disk have 
launched Image FX, an image 
processing program with a differ- 
ence. Not only Is it AGA savvy, 
but Image FX also displays a pre- 
view image on screen and shows 
the effects of operations on it in real time, Sound good? Check out the 
full review on... Page 1 22 




A complete multimedia authoring system that allows 
you to build applications and programs for a host of 
different tasks: from education to information dissemina- 
tion. We gave an early version away on AF35. but 
INOVAtronics have improved it considerably since then. 
see what we think of the new version on... Page 1 32 

Disk Manaqement 



O! 



If someone offered you a program that would let you do 
all those fiddly things, that were only previously do-able 
via the shell, by a simple series of mouse clicks, you'd 
be a fool not to jump at it. If they then improved it to be 
completely user configurable, and be able to handle 256 
colours and HAMS images, you'd be even more of a fool 
to pass It up. Directory Opus 4 is that program. To see 
the review of our favourite piece of software ever why 
not turn now to... Page 1 49 




Hardware 



MICROBOTICS 

MBX1200 

One problem with the A1200 Is 
that it lacks a maths co-proces- 
sor, another is that it has no fast 
RAM. Real speed increases are to 
be had by the addition of either, 
but now you can have both with 
the addition of this reasonably priced trapdoor expansion card form 
the USA. Is it worth the outlay? Page 1 28

IMAGE PROCESSING 



122 









Brian Larkman reckons ASDG and 
BlackBelt had better beware. GVP's 
new image processing program is 
about to steal their thunder. 




Image processing package ■ £249 ■ GVP 



IT'S TIME TO come clean. However good. 
last and effective the paint and image process- 
ing software has been for the Amiga over the 
last couple of years, my enthusiasm has 
always been a bit choked after using a pro- 
gram called PhotoShop on the Macintosh. I 
hear your accusations of disloyalty, but anyone 
who has worked with it has to agree thai the 
combination of its simple interface and 
immense power is unbeatable - so far! 

Yes. OK. ASDG's ADPro is pretty pow- 
erful and fast, but what about simple paint 
tools? No chance. Feathered edges for com- 
positing? - 'fraid not! And that grey interface 
- a few hours work and even our own Johnny 
Majorette can look more psychedelic. 
ImageMaslvr from BlackBelt is pretty good 
too I suppose - as long as you take a map to 
find your way back to the main screen. And 
again, no real edge leathering. In the middle of 
all this. tma$vFX from GVP comes as a breath 
of fresh air. and though it still isn't PhotoShop. 
it is a huge leap closer. Only one other pro- 
gram - OpalPuint - gets nearer, and you have 
to buy a 24-bit buffer to get that! 

[.ike OpalPainU ImageFX looks striking!) 
slick and professional for an Amiga program, 
much like all GVP's products. The packaging. 
manual and icons inspire you with confidence. 
a feeling that grows when you see the interlace 
and start to play with the tools. The toolbox is 
a rather broad strip taking up about the bottom 
third of the screen. This can be greatly reduced 
if you can use interlace mode. In any case the 
right mouse button can be used to toggle the 
whole toolbox at any time - even during a 
drawing operation. 

All of the available tools are here; no 
menus are used. Instead you use a modified 
version of the standard Amiga GaoTools cycle 
gadgets. These are an acquired taste, but once 
acquired they work well if the list of functions 
is not too long. 

l-'oi painting there is a row of icons com- 
plete with tricd-and-tcsted tools, some better 
and some worse than the PPuint standards. 
Curve for instance is siill the simple OPaint 
type: it's about time for a more useful Bezier 
type curve though. Airbrush is much better 
than the usual splatter, giving true smooth 
blends of colour in Spray mode, plus Smudge 
and Finger Paint, as well as many other draw-

Distortion — the eyes 
and mouth ore the 
more obvious evidence 
of a face. If you look 
carefully the distor- 
tions around the edge 
are like locks of hair. 
The eyes and mouth 
have been brought 
through from the same 
image using Rub- 
Through mode. 




The stunning imoges 
reproduced on these 
pages only show a 
small percentage of 
what ImageFX is capa- 
ble of. Apart from 
OpolPaint, no other 
package on the Amiga 
comes near it. 



ing/fill effects - Matte. Darken. Lighten. 
Colour. Gradient. Colorize. Hue. Saturation. 
Value. Blur. Rub-Through. Trace Through and 
Add. All of these can operate through an X-bit 
grey scale Alpha channel (using the level of 
grey to control transparency* and at an> per- 
centage ol Blend. 

These effects apply to all of the drawing 
and fill tools: and so does one of the most 
important features of ImageFX - Edge 
Feathering. The greatest limitation of all previ- 
ous true-colour systems for the Amiga has 
been the lack of control of edges, which is 
vital if objects are to be composited together 
without the joins showing like tome badly fit- 
ting rug* on a local politician's bonce. 

Some programs have anti-aliasing, and 
some have a degree of edge transparency . but 
none - until now - have had the abdity to 
blend the edges of irregular objects into their 
background smoothly ImageFX allows you 10 




Sel the number of pixels that a feathered edge 
will have, and even whether the leather will 
work in from the edge or out from it. 

\v you ma> have realised, htui^-t \ has .1 
pretty good set of painting tools; but funda- 
mentally it is an image proc e ssing, not paint, 
program. Below ihe paint tools on the control 
panel are a set of 15 named buttons similar to 
those of ImageMaster. Each of these gives 
access to a •palette' of tools grouped intelli- 
gently according to function. 

The range of image processing tools 
offered is not as large as ImageMaster's, and 
the control is not quite as complete as 
ADPro's. but the (implicit) and case of use is 
greater than either of these programs. 

For an artist or designer who wants a par- 
ticular effect, this means he or she can just get 
on with the job without the program getting in 
the way In an\ wise, the Hook and ARcxx 
programs provided make up for limitations of 
control or versatility. Advanced users can add 
their own functions or modify the ones given 
and. for once, novice users can apply ARcxx 
scripts without any knowledge of program- 
ming at all. 

That's a quick overview of the tools, but what 
are thes like to use? ImageFX does all of its 
work on 24-bit files internally, but like ADPm 
and I main Master it has to use a normal Amiga 
resolution to displas the results. Like ADPro, 
ImageFX uses a simple, fast working display, 
though as well as \DPn>\ gre> scale \ou can 
also choose from 16 colour. IG colour dithered 
and HAM. Like ImageMaster^ the display 



IMAGE PROCESSING 




is always lull screen whether the image i s 
j l.(HK) x 1.000 pixel scan or just a 
60 x 60 brush. 

The more subtle effects are impossible to 
see on this preview' so a slower 'render' can 
be made at a higher Amiga resolution or to 
another board. Some specialist boards are 
catered for - HAM-E. DCTV. RreCracker. 
and GVP's own 1V24 - and this list will grow. 
If you have an AGA machine, a high-resolu- 
tion HAMS render is virtually the same as a 
full 24-bit image - to my eye at least. 

Strangely, preview mode seems to ignore 
the AGA completely, using standard Amiga 1<> 
colour and HAM resolutions. Surely the 8-bit 
display of the AGA is almost as fast as stan- 
dard 16 colours, especially on a 4000. An S-bit 
preview would be an advantage since 16 
colours dithered is useless, and standard HAM 
is a drag if you don't have to use it! 

All this is academic for now because 
InutfU'h'X still seems a little buggy on a 12(H). 
Cutting a brush or selecting an area to operate- 
on often corrupts the screen. Closing the selec- 
tion or brush usuallv returns the screen to 
normal. Overall though, using the tools and 
image-processing functions - even on a 12(H) - 
is light years ahead of any previous processing 
or paint program other than OpalPaint. 

There are plenty of other excellent fea- 
tures and here's a quick run down of them: 

• Virtual memory allows very large images 10 
be worked on by using part of the hard disk 
memory as if it were RAM. 

• File conversion - between 25 or more dif- 
ferent formats (includes Mae and PC TIFFsi.

HOW TO CREATE EFFECTIVE IMAGES 
RUB-THROUGH 

(WomanMixTiger) 
Even if there were no edge 
feathering (but there ii he 
yelled!), air-brushing in 
Rub-Through mode enables 
you to smooth two blended 
images Into one. Look 
especially at the way that 
the tiger's fur shows 
through realistically under the woman's hair on her 
forehead. This could not be achieved so sensitively In 
any other way. 

DISPERSE AND BLUR 

(BevelShade) 
A more mundane use of 
image processing is to com- 
bine images such as these 
to provide a background for 
text of some sort. These 
four pictures (courtesy of 
Rakusen Photographic) were 
scanned In and reduced 
using Size/Scale. To blend them together, the area 
around the functions was selected and the Disperse 
Effect applied. 

This left a slightly coarse grain so Convolve/Blur 
was used on the same areas. The Bevel is just a sim- 
ple Darken effect using a polygon tool, and the 
shadow Is a Colour copy of the bevelled picture 
pasted down in Darken mode with Feather In as an 
Edge effect. 

IMAGEFX INTERFACE 

(Interface) 

The toolbox is a rather 
broad band taking up about 
the bottom third of the 
screen. This can be greatly 
reduced if you can use 
interlace mode. In any case 
the right mouse button can 
be used to toggle the whole 
toolbox at any time - even during a drawing opera- 
tion. All of the available tools are here; no menus are 
used at all. 

COMPOSITING 

Hjjj^K — " ^^aa| (StoneHead) 

\ Having Feathered edges to 

^* brushes means that objects 

LobCV can be placed without any 

seams showing. If pictures 
with a similar orientation 
and light direction are cho- 
sen, a convincing collage 
can be constructed. Only the 
guitar looks odd here because it is lit from the left, 
unlike everything else. 





VASE A ORANGE 




(VaseA Orange) 
When you first glance at 
this image. It looks as 
though It's ray-traced; but 
It Is In fact rendered and 
constructed completely In 

ImageFX. Wow! 




Great images, and for the sort of price that both 
professional and amateur artists can offord. 

• five or six common framegrabbers and 
scanners are directly supported from within 
the program. 

• The Alpha channel can be used to ptoduce 
S-bit. semi-transparent masking 'friskets' and 
textured surfaces. 

• Any ImageFX effect can be applied easily 
to a series of frame and saved as an ANIM 
automatically. The input frames can be coming 
direct from another rendering program such 
as ray-tracing. 

• Full motion Morphs. single and double 
image Morphs and Warps can be produced 
using an internal 'hook' program identical 
with CincMorph. This is going to be reviewed 
in full next month as part of our Morphing 
Spectacular! 

On Ihe down side there arc of course a num- 
ber of things about ImageFX thai could be 
improved. There should be more buffers, 
including a whole separate set of brush buffers 
with an easj visual method of selecting them. 
If only GVP had taken the lead from 
OpalPainl and Personal Paint and used a 
visual file selection method, or at least full- 
colour picture icons. With lots of files you 
have to have an easy way to choose them Text 
handling is weak, gradient ranges should be 
shown (and reversible) in the fill requester, 
and selections should be capable of editing. 
saving and loading. 

On balance though, this has to be the best 
image-processing system so far on the Amiga. 
Both ASDG and BlackBcll will have to make 
their systems a lot more attractive and simpler 
to use to beat this little babv. for sure! ^

POWKR. THAIS WHAT u\ all about 
Pure processing power. A 68020 CPU as used 
in the A 1 200 is all very well, bui programs 
like Imagine. Heal 3D % Cinemorph. Morph 
Plus and Pro/rvw"""/ Pa\>c use all ihis povser 
and memory like there's no tomorrow. 

A special chip lo handle all lhat heavy-duty 
maths business would be useful, don't you 
think? Plus, a couple of megabytes of 32-bii 

RAM for all those greedy programs wouldn't 
go amiss, would it? 

And this is where these |wn accelerator 
cards come into the picture. Both of them have 
a slot for a special chip for carrying out float- 
ing point maths calculations, called a Floating 
Point Unit (FPU). 

An FPL' can handle maths much faster than 
the 68020 CPU. because il'l designed specifi- 
cally to do this antl nothing else, The FPU can 



be Of two types: the oKKKI and 68882. They 
arc similar, but the 68882 is a slightly 
improved version, and it can be run at a faster 
clock speed, meaning that the calculations will 
be carried out faster. 

Neither of these cards will make your 
shoot-cm-ups run any faster, but flight simula- 
tors, strategy games and other programs which 
require a lot of CPU use. or take up a lot of 
memory, will benefit from the extra power - 
usually in the form of faster screen updates 
and improved animation. 

In order to test these two cards in a real-life 
situation, we've used three programs: Syslnfo. 
Ufiii and Vista. The first two arc Public 
Domain programs which nin speed tests, and 
wc arc using the accelerated version of \isttt, 
because it makes extensive use of the FPU. 
and uses large amounts of memory. O 



AMIGA REALLY ON THE CARDS? 



Rumours are currently circulating about a 
new 68030-based Amiga. Although 
Commodore have not confirmed or denied 
the gossip. It does seem likely that the gap 
In the Amiga range between the A1200 and 
A4000 will be tilled. Such an Amiga would 
probably be in the sub-£l,000 price range, 
and thus In competition with these cards. 



If you think you need the expandabil- 
ity of a 'big box' Amiga, you may want to 
wait. But a hard drive and A1230 equipped 
A 1200 will probably hold its own against 
any planned new machine. Fully equipping 
an At 200 costs more than the anticipated 
£1000 price point. So it's best done only if 
you really need the AGA modes now. 



If you've recently purchased an Amiga 1 200, you will 

probably be revelling in your new-found computing 

power. But if you're into those power-hungry applications, 

maybe you need more memory. Richard Baguley 

examines your options for beefing-up your machine... 



PERFORMANCE OF ACCELERATOR CARDS 

If you're comparing cards, people will no doubt throw terms like MIPS. MFIops and 32-blt 
memory at you. All this can be. at best, confusing and at worst completely useless. After 
all If you're running badly written software on an accelerator card that runs 30 times 
faster than a standard Amiga, its not necessarily going to run 30 times faster. 

Thus, we decided to give you more than the basic tacts and figures in the table 
below, so that you, the user, can really judge how useful these cards could be. We car- 
ried out five tests. The first two give you Information on the speed of the cards, and the 
last three are an indication of the sort of improvement in performance you're likely to 
see. The speed figures for an A4000 are also given, but bear In mind that this machine 
uses a 68040 chip, which has many further improvements from the 68030 (as used in the 
GVP card) and the 68020 (as used in the A1200). It also costs a lot more.

The GVP offering is based around a 40Mhz 68EC030 
CPU and an optional 68882 FPU which has been slightly 
reconfigured to GVP's requirements. Both of these and 
two SIMMs (Single In-line Memory Module) memory 
slots fit on to the board, which can hold up to 32 Mb of 
memory. In order to reach this, the board uses 16 Mb 
SIMMs, which are not yet widely available. According to 
Silica, they should be on sale within the next few 
months, but prices have not yet been released. 

The board itself is well constructed, with relatively 
little space unused, and no untidy leads snaking across 
It. There are a selection of jumpers controlling various 
aspects of the board, but most of these can be con- 
trolled via the software which comes with the board, as 
can the various registers of the CPU. 

Fitting the board in the A 1200 trapdoor slot Is a bit 
tiddly, as It's a pretty tight fit. A small bit of plastic pro- 
truding from one end of the PCB also means that Its 
not possible to put the cover back on, but a small bit of 
trimming with a scalpel soon deals with this. Stick the 
cover back on. power up and you're away. 

The board is auto-configuring, which means that 
you don't have to add anything to your startup- 



sequence to use the memory that's fitted to it. There Is a 
program which copies the Klckstart ROM into RAM 
memory, giving faster access, but this isn't vital. If you 
haven't got much memory, or don't want to bother, then 
just don't run this program. Because the ROMs In the 
A1200 are already pretty fast, the increase In perfor- 
mance Is relatively small. 

Also included with the software is a diagnostic pro- 
gram called Memtest, which tests the memory fitted to 
the SIMM slots. On this subject, it's only possible to use 
the more expensive 32-bit SIMMs in this card. The 
cheaper and more common 8-bit type cannot be used. 

This board Is extremely fast. When running with 
software that uses this extra power, the speed increase 
is in the region o( around 600 per cent. Only the A4000 
runs faster. However, it is expensive. If you need the 
power and have the money, then this is well worth con- 
sidering. Another factor in your choice may be the 
rumoured introduction of new Amigas based around the 
68030 (see box bottom left). 

It's also the first accelerator card for the A 1200. and 
I would hope to see more models of this type available 
soon from both GVP and other manufacturers.

The Mlcrobotics card is a memory and FPU unit, and It 
does not contain a taster CPU. The review model has a 
14.3 Mhz 68881 Floating Point Unit (FPU) fitted, but it 
can be fitted with a 25 or 50Mhz 68882, which would 
give an extremely large increase in performance. 

The board also has one SIMM slot, which can hold 
up to 8Mb of memory. This has to be the 32-blt type, as 
used in the A4000. Neither of the accelerators reviewed 
can take the more common 8-bit types used on PCs and 
many Amiga hard disks. 

This is a well constructed board, although there is 
more space on it than the GVP model. However, there 
are fewer components. Fitting is reasonably easy, 
although the review model seemed to need a fair bit of 
force before it fitted properly in the trapdoor. Plus, the 
board is set up so that the components face outwards 
when fitted, and given the stiffness of the trapdoor slot, 
you inevitably end up grabbing one of these compo- 
nents and pushing It to get the card in. 

Once fitted, the board is auto-configurlng. so no 
extra software is required. Workbench 3 automatically 
detects the presence of the FPU, and includes a library 
which enables software to use it. Software to test both 



the memory and FPU Is Included, as well as the PD util- 
ity AIBB, which provides various tests to check the 
performance of your machine. 

If you've got 8Mb of RAM fitted to this card, then 
you will find there's a conflict with the PCMCIA card 
slot. In order to run your Amiga with the card, you'll 
either need to limit the memory on the accelerator to 
4Mb or disable the PCMCIA slot. 

There is software included which does this, but this 
is not a good solution. With PCMCIA hopefully becom- 
ing a way of not only adding memory, but also of 
connecting peripherals to your Amiga, this could 
become a serious problem. 

The card also comes with software to test the mem- 
ory and FPU, as well as the software mentioned above 
to nobble the PCMCIA slot. Also enclosed is the PD pro- 
gram AIBB, which Is similar to Syslnfo, but does not 
give information specific to the A1200. 

If you're running ray tracing or DTP software on a 
limited budget, this card could be a godsend. It pro- 
vides a considerable increase in speed, and an easy 
and reasonably cheap method ol expanding the mem- 
ory of your machine. ®

HARD DRIVE 



130 



* 







Undecided about a hard drive for your 
A500 or A500 Plus? Well here's a cheap 
drive that missed last month's roundup, 
and Richard Baguley thinks it's fab... 



driver which enables \ou io pretend that it's an 
SCSI drive. This doesn't mean (hat you can 
add SCSI drives because it's a software thing 
only. Quite what use this is I don't know, but 
it's there if you want il. Although IDE is 
slower than SCSI, it still achieves a gi»od data 
transfer rale of about 635 K per second, and 
booting the machine up with Workbench 2.0 
lakes about 15 seconds 

And speaking of booting up. there is a 
problem with this. The drive seems to take a 
few seconds to speed up. and the interface 
takes a few seconds to look around and see 
what dines are connected. While all this is 
going on. the disk can't be accessed by the 
Amiga, and this leads ii to think thai there's no 
drive present, so it tries to boot from floppy. A 
quick reboot alter a few seconds deals with 
this, so it's not a huge problem. 



The equivalent of 1 70 
floppy disks stored in 
a little box Gk« this? 
And for only £349? 
You must be joking! 
Well actually, no. 





External IDE hard drive ■ £ 1 99 for 40 Mb, £349 for 1 20 Mb ■ Golden Image 



THE PHRASE THAT springs to mind is 
cheap. Not that this is necessarily a bad thing. 
Alter all. this drive comes in some t'HHi 
cheaper than the models reviewed in lasi 
month's round-up. Mind you, as the saying 
goes, 'you get what you pay for". Or do you? 

It looks pretty basic: a sheet metal case 
and two push buttons on the front. One acts as 
a game switch, disabling the hard disk, and the 
other disables the memory. The four LEDs 
indicate power, hard disk enabled, hard disk in 
use and memory enabled. Its colour co-ordi- 
nated with the Amiga case, although the 
profile doesn't quite line up. 

There's also a 25-wiy, plug-shaped hole 
in the back, which is probably a throwback to 
SCSI-based models. You can't connect any- 
thing to this, as there's no socket lined. There 
arc ventilation slots, but no fan. However, 
modern hard disks don't tend to get very hoi, 
even when they are run for long periods, so 
thai shouldn't he a problem. 

You can fit either one 3.5-inch or two 2.5- 
inch hard disks, although the latter are more 
expensive and require the use of a small metal 
bracket to fit into the case. The review model 
was fitted with a 120 Mb, 3.5-inch Connor 
drive, and this would cost £349. 

The disks screw directly on lo the outside 
CISC unhke the cradle used in other models. 
This leaves the screw heads protruding I'rom 
the side. This shouldn't be a problem, but it 
does look a bit untidy. 

Power is drawn from the Amiga, through 
(he expansion slot. I'd recommend that you 



sec about obtaining an external power supply, 
especially if you're running other peripherals 
such as floppv drives or memory expansions, 
as you run the risk of overloading both the 
Amiga's power supply and the components 
inside the Amiga which handle the power 

It's nicely designed inside, there's a single 
PCB, and this is sparsely populated. It's got 
slots for memory, and a lew chips. 
and acres of empty space There's 
space for up to 8Mb here, using Zig 
Zag Inline Packaging (ZIP) RAM 
chips instead of the SIMM modules 
used on most other drives. The ZIP 
chips aren't as widely available, but

2Mb. Fitting them is really a job for 
a professional, because they're extremely sen- 
sitive to static. 

Golden Image will also prepare the disk 
and install whichever version of Workbench 
you require. This is just as well, since the 
installation procedure is complex, requiring 
the installation of special device drivers and 
the use Hi software which has not been trans- 
lated from the Gentian version very well. 

Once it's set up. you can forget all about 
that, because it's auto-mounting, and runs hap- 
pily without any user intervention or special 

devices. There are several utilities to test the 
ilisk ;md memory on the accompanying 
diskette, although some of these have not been 
translated from the original program. 

This model uses only IDE drives, 
although the software disk includes a device

•It's nicely designed, 

tough and it's pretty 
fast compared to a lot 
of other hard drives * 



This is a nice drive, but it's fairly obvious that 
the designers have cut comers to keep the 
price down. The case is fairly tough, but the 
screws on the outside make it look rather 
untidy. The hole at the back seems to indicate 
that this model has been put together from bits 
left over from previous models, but if it works 
(as It docs), what's the problem with that? It's 
not the fastest mode available, but it's pretty 
fast in comparison w ith other drives. 

The buttons on the front are a nice feature. 
allowing you lo switch off just the hard disk 
but keep the memory running. This could be 
useful if you run am games that can take 
advantage of the extra memory. 

There is no doubt about the benefits of 
hard drives, but if you're not familiar with the 
technical aspects of them, then this model 
should be approached with some caution. 

However, if you're confident about this, 
or know a man or woman who is. then it is 
highly recommended. *2>

Jason Holborn enters the buzzing world 

of multimedia with nothing more 

than his Amiga and a copy of 

INOVAtronics' new version of CanDo... 




Multimedia Software ■ £1 29 ■ INOVAtronics 



IN THESE FAST-MOVING limes, fads 
come and go - skateboards, declee hoppers 
and the Rubik's cube arc just a few of the fads 
that have fallen foul of fashion changes. 
Computers have fads too. Remember all the 
excitement that accompanied the birth of the 
multimedia revolution in the late Eighties? 
Virtually every computer magazine under the 
sun gave valuable editorial space to an appli- 
cation that hadn't even been fully defined. 

To be fair though, multimedia hasn't suf- 
fered the same fate as most fads. In fact it has 
matured into a genuinely useful application 
that is now seeing sterling service providing 
the computer-illiterate with training systems, 
point-of-information booths and a whole host 
of other next-generation applications. And the 
Amiga is still going strong in the multimedia 
market thanks to products such as CDTV. 
AmigaVision and INOVAtronics' CanDo. and 
-for an in-depth look at multimedia see the 
main feature on Page 29-35. 

CanDo has been around for many years 
during which time it has matured into a power- 
ful multimedia authoring system. Unlike pure 
multimedia s\ stems such as Amiga\'isn>n. 
CanDo' s strength lies in its adaptability 
Whereas AmigaYision is strictly an interactive 
presentation generator. < 'anDo can be used foi 
a myriad of different tasks, including software 
development. If your programming skills 
aren't quite up to scratch, then CanDo will 
even enable you to create fully functional pro- 
grams with ease. Now that version 2.0 has 
arrived, it's belter than ever. 



As they say on Blur 
P9I91 - htre's one I 
prepared earlier! 
CanDo 2.0 is the por- 
ted tool for building 
Interactive multimedia 
presentations and 
training systems. 



CANDO 2.0 is 
available from Silica 
Systems on 
081 309 1111.

Although CanDo was revolutionary when 
it was first released on the Amiga in August 
1991 (sec AF25 - X0 per cent. An early ver- 
sion of was given away on the Coverdisk of 
4F36). much of its design is based around 
HyperCard for the Apple Macintosh. 

The idea behind HyperCard clones is that 
applications and presentations are built from a 
set of cards which form a deck or stack. Each 
card is best thought of as a single screen or 
requester in your application, and can have a 
set of gadgets and pull-down menus assigned 
to it so that when the user clicks on them they 
perform a particular operation that you define. 



CanDo makes the task of building up a 
deck nice and eas\ thanks in a very friendly 
icon-based editor that enables you to define 
virtually every aspect of your application sim- 
ply by clicking on-screen gadgets. CanDo 
offers a pretty extensive set of gadgets ranging 
from the usual push-button type to active lists, 
or pull-down menus and you can even define 
hyperlinks within text. 

What's more. CanDo gives you extensive 
control over the look of these gadgets, 
enabling you to create anything from a weird 
and wacky frontend, to one that fully complies 
with Commodore's Workbench 2.0-style 
guidelines (even on a 1.3 Amiga!). 



WHATS NEW IN VERSION 2.0 



For existing CanDo users, version 2.0 has several 
new features which are really worth upgrading lor. 
Here's a rundown of the major revised features on 
otter with the latest release. 

BUG BASHER - Bug Basher Is an enhanced ver- 
sion of the verify option available within the script 
editor. Its Job Is basically to search through the 
current script for syntax problems, inappropriate 
keywords and missing quotes. Although 
BugBasher cannot trap logic errors, it makes the 
task of tracking down typos and syntax errors con- 
siderably easier. 

SCRIPT BOOKMARKING - Script bookmarking pro- 
vides a nice simple method of accessing scripts 
embedded heavily within an application. Simply by 
clicking on the bookmark editor tool while you're 



working on a script, that script will be added to a 
list ot marked scripts. When you want to edit the 
script at a later date, all you have to do Is select the 
bookmark option again and a list ot marked scripts 
will be displayed. Script bookmarking can make 
application development considerably faster 
because you no longer need to Hick (slowly) 
through CanDo s menu system. 

OBJECT LAYER TOOL - The Object layer tool 
enables the user to precisely control the order in 
which objects are drawn when you move on to a 
different card. 

DOS NOTIFY - With the arrival of Workbench 2.0, 
AmlgaDOS now enables any application to be 
Informed when a file or directory has been changed 
(a file has been deleted, for example). CanDo can 



now execute a script when a particular file or direc- 
tory has been tampered with. 

SUPER DUPER - Creating a neat screen display 
consisting of lots of precisely aligned buttons was 
previously a bit of a hit-and-miss affair on earlier 
versions of this program, but Its new super 
duper tool makes life considerably easier by 
enabling you to duplicate objects and place them at 
an offset from the original. All In all this is an 
extremely useful tool. 

IMPROVED UTILITIES - Several of the CanDo utili- 
ties have been improved considerably with the 
addition of Workbench trontends. In particular, 
both the deckblnder and multideckbinder (both ot 
which were previously CLi-only) can now be run 
from the Workbench.

^^^^^^^^^^^^ 






Once you've defined your gadgeis. opera- 
tions arc then assigned lo them using CanDo's 
built-in scripting language which is essentially 
a BASIC-likc programming language. Don't 
let this put you off though - because CanDo is 
primarily an authoring system for non-pro- 
grammers, its scripting language has been 
deigned with simplicity in mind. That's not to 
say it's limited though. Far from it. Virtually 
every function offered by a modem BASIC is 
there, plus quite a few extra multimedia-orien- 
tated functions. A new, improved manual 
helps io make learning the language easy too. 

CanDo really lets you go to town with your 
applications. Not only can you display pictures 
and read text files from within your applica- 
tion, but you can also build in animated 
buttons using DPaint AnimBrushes. display 
ANIM-format animations, and even play 
sound samples. Surprisingly. CanDo still 
doesn't support the nw» AGA chip m-i which 
is a real shame if you want lo produce presen- 
tations that draw upon 256 colour or HAM-8 
images and animations. 

Although INOVAtronics have tried their 
best to supply a selection of Workbench 2.0- 
like gadgets, you're still limited to creating 
applications in the standard Amiga screen 
modes. The AGA chip set's new 256-colour 
screen modes are perfect for multimedia work, 
so this is definitely a missed opportunity. To 
make the situation even worse. CanDo doesn't 
even handle the now aging ECS screen modes 
such as Productivity and SuperHiRes!

CanDo vso% a 
Menu structure 
with the main 
menu at the 
root off the 
system. From 
here all other 
CanDo opera- 
tions are performed simply by clicking on a gadget. 
The main menu is split into three sections - a 
browse/edit menu, a cards menu and the tools menu. 
By far the most used off these three menus is the tools 
menu that contains all the editors that are used to 
construct each CanDo card.

Unless you 
want your 
CanDo appli- 
cation to run 
on the 
Workbench 
screen, the 
screen editor 
Is used to define the screen resolution and the num- 
ber of colours to be used by a card. Each card can 
have its own screen set up and you can even drop an 
IFF picture behind it to add a bit off extra flair to your 
application. The screen editor is also used to control 
the format off the initial window opened by the card 
(all cards must have a window). Unfortunately, CanDo 
2.0 still hasn't caught up with either the new AOA 
chip set or even Workbench 2.0 (let alone 3.0), so 
you're limited to the standard Amiga screen modes 
with Workbench 1.3 window gadgets. 



SCRIPT EDITOR

Undoubtedly 
the most pow- 
erful off all the 
editors on 
offer Is the 
script editor 
which Is used 
to define the 

operation of each and every object within your appli- 
cation. Each and every object needs a script file which 
is essentially a BASIC-IIke program that defines what 
happens when the user selects that particular object. 
Don't let the thought of having to program put you off 
though - CanDo's script language is very friendly and 
extremely easy to use indeed. In fact you'll probably 
be surprised just how painless It Is to program some 
quite powerful scripts. 




CanDo 



oatu Ntim 




CanDo 2.(7$ new lug Basher utility makes the 
task of debugging scripts considerably easier. 

On a more positive note, one aspect of 
CanDo that cannot be praised highly enough is 
its ability to control (and be controlled by) 
other applications and devices through ARcxx 
ports. Simply by assigning an ARexx script 
lo a gadget, CanDo can call upon the talents 
of other applications extending its power 
immeasurably. 

Once your CanDo application is com- 
plete. INOVAtronics provide a sort of 
mini-compiler called Deck Hinder that turns 
CanDo decks into stand-alone applications. 
What's more, once a deck has been bound, it 
can be distributed without having to rely on 
w>ur potential users owning CanDo. Bound 
decks seem to run faster too. which is good 
news if you're using CanDo professionally. 

CanDo deserves the recognition that it has 
commanded for years. But even this latest 
release is not without its faults. The CanDo 
editor is still rather slow, moving between 
menus is a rather tiresome affair that can even- 
tually lead to fits of frustration. If CanDo were 
as fast as il is sleek, it would definitely be 
Amiga Format Gold material. As it is. you 
just can't help having mixed feelings about it. 
even with all thai power on tap. 

Gripes aside though, there's no doubting 
thai CanDo is still one hell of a package. If 
you need to produce training systems or multi- 
media applications, you'll find CanDo a very 
capable package indeed. Even if your needs 
are somewhat less adventurous. CanDo is 
worth considering. In fact there's very link- 
that CanDo can't do! O 



CanDo 2.0 



Although CanDo decks run at an acceptable 
apaad, the CanDo program it still slow. 

DOCUMENTATION • • • • 

The CanDo 2.0 manual la certainly a vaat 
Improvement over the previous one. 

ACCESSIBILITY • • • • • 

CanDo still isn't the sort ot program you'll mas- 
ter overnight. Perseverance Is the key here! 

FEATURES • • • • • 

The lack of AGA support Is a big disappoint- 
ment, but there's little else to fault

You can't say fairer than £130 pounds for a

UTILITY 



Jason Holborn examines a new 
directory utility that can help keep 
your disks firmly under control. 



MRKCTORY UTILITIKS ARK strange 

beasts - although they don't actually produce 
anything, they're possibly the mos! useful pro- 
gram you could ever buy for your Amiga. 

Unless you enjoy torturing yourself with 
the plethora of complicated commands that 
must be learnt in order to muster Shell, a direc- 
tory utility makes your life a lot easier, and 
enables you to perform the same maintenance 
and general disk housekeeping chores that 
were previously only possible with Shell. 

With a program such as Directory Opus 4. 
you can copy, delete and rename files, view 
pictures, play sound samples and do much 
more, simply by clicking on-screen gadgets. 

INOVAtronics' Opus directory utility has 
been doing the rounds for a fair old while, dur- 
ing which time it has established itself as the 
number one directory utility on ihe Amiga. 
This is certainly no mean feat when you con- 
sider that its main rivals arc Public Domain 
programs such as Sid 2 and ClickDOS, which 
can be picked up for little more than Ihe price 
of a disk. What made the original Directory 
Opus so special was its sheer power, case of 
use and logical design - something that was 
sadly lacking from its PD counterparts. 

No! wanting lo rest on their laurels. 
INOVAtronics have now launched Directory 
Opus 4, which boasts full support for the new 
AA chip set {Opus 4 will happily display bolh 
256 colour and HAM-8 pictures) and a far 
more configurable frontend than before. It is 
w ithout doubt the most powerful directory 
utility available. 

Directory Opus 4 provides you with two 
viewports, each of which can display the con- 
tents of a different directory. At its simplest 
level, these viewports can be used to navigate 
your way around the directory structure of any 
disk simply by clicking on the directory you

DIRECTORY OPUS 4

wish to enter. This is much easier than having 
to type a complex pathname at the Shell 
prompt, simply because it's a more visual 
method of operating. 

The program also has an extremely useful 
new Tree function that enables you to view the 
entire structure of a disk as a series of linked 
sub-directories. However. Directory Opus 4 
really comes into its own when you start to 
perform operations on the files and directories 
on your disks. Running along Ihe bottom of 
the Opus screen arc a scries of buttons, each of 
which performs a specific operation. 

By default. Opus comes equipped with all 
the usual functions you'd expect to enable you 
to copy, delete, rename and view files. Indeed. 



CONFIGURE IT OUT 



One of the most powerful aspects of Directory Opus 4 
Is the extent to which It can be configured by the user. 
Virtually every aspect of the program can be changed 
in some way to suit your individual nt ds and prefer- 
ences, ranging from mere cosmetic changes such as 
screen and gadget colours, to more powerful aspects 
of the program's operation. 

The most useful application of this feature Is that 
all the burtons and pull-down menus can be individu- 
ally assigned with any combination of the program's 
extensive range of built-in commands. These com- 
mands are what make Opus 4 so powerful - because 
several can be grouped under a single menu or button 
option. For example, You can assign an entire script to 
just a single mouse click, giving you far more control 
over AmigaDOS. 

For those of you lucky enough to own a machine 
running Workbench 2.0 (or greater), Directory Opus 4 
can also be run as a Commodity, making it an Ideal 
addition to a hard disk-based machine with memory to 
spare. Like most Commodities, you can assign a hot- 
key to Opus 4 so that it can be Instantly accessed from 
any program. Even if you don't run Workbench 2.0. 




Directory Opus 4's configure tool gives you extensive con- 
trol over both the look and operation of the program. 

Opus 4 can still be 'Iconised' into a tiny Workbench 
window - It now permanently lives on my system. 
Whenever I need to access Opus, all I have to do is to 
press the left Amiga button and 'O' and I have instant 
access. Aren't Commodities wonderful! 



if you can think of a Shell or Workbench oper- 
ation, the chances arc that there's a button 
there that will'do the job. 

Even if you can't find the operation you 
want. Opus 4 provides a host of built-in com- 
mands that can be assigned to any one of the 
buttons, and several commands can be linked 
together on a single button (a macro, if you 
like». enabling you to perform several opera- 
tions with a single click of the mouse button. 

Opus 4 is an improvement on the other 
excellent Opus releases which have received 
very favourable reviews in AF (89 per cent in 
AP3Q and 92 per cent in AF39). You may 
think that £80 is a lot to pay for such a utility, 
but once you've used it. you'll never want to 
touch the Shell again. I've been so impressed 
with it that I'm sending off for my copy from 
INOVAtronics now! <I>

MOM PKOPI.F HAVE an occasional flutta 
on famous races such as the Grand National. 
They win or lose - usually the latter - and then 
I'orgel the whole experience for another year. 

Regular gamblers adopt a far more profes- 
sional altitude, and the really serious ones 
probably don't bet on the National because it's 
such a difficult race to predict. The form book. 
as they say. goes out of the window. For one 
thing, the Aintrec racecourse is the most diffi- 
cult to complete in the world, lor another. 40 
runners competing for the prize makes a 
mockery of even the best racing system. 

Professional gamblers always have a sys- 
tem which works by the punter giving horses a 
rating for how fast they are over a given 
course. By analysing the past performances, 01 
form, of a horse, a picture is obtained of (he 
one most likely to win. 

Needless to say. doing all the mathematics 
using a pen and paper takes many hours - but 
thousands of people across the country use just 
these son of methods, in order to obtain a cut- 
ting edge of success. 

Enter a program thai can make life an 
awful lot easier. ProPunter has been evolving 
since 1987. and it's got that robust feeling 
about it of a program that has been improved 
upon over the years. 

To be honest, the cursor-controlled menus 
betray its PC origins - no WIMP (Windows 
Icons Mouse Pointer) system here, no mouse 



control at all in fact. Hard disk users have to 
run the program from the Shell, which means 
it's a bit of a pain to use. 

You have to carefully enter data from one 
of the better papers dedicated to horse racing, 
such as the Rating Post or the Sporting Life. 
Don't use a daily paper, because it won't pro- 
vide you with enough information. While you 
are learning the system, you are better off 
entering dummy data and learning (he subtle 
points of how it works. 

Getting a good result is very dependant on 
just what you enter. One slip of the finger on 
the keyboard can alter the predicted results by 
a huge margin. Eventually though, you get to 
know all the racing terms and funny data (do 
you really understand weight handicaps'.'!. It's 
then that ProPunter starts to shine. 

Does it work? You bet it docs! The makers 
advocate using a '50 bet bank" to increase 
your chances of success, but if you haven't 
had a win by your tenth race, you are not 
entering data correctly in my opinion. The 
manual stales that the program gets a horse in 
the top two predicted finishers 60 per cent of 
the time. At first. I couldn't do this, but a close 
read of the manual and a bit of trial and error 
soon showed me where I was going wrong. 

ProPunter is not limited to use in the UK. 
By means of the International option, you can 
enter course data for foreign courses and gen- 



Pat McDonald slips down to the bookies 
to give them a real fleecing, thanks to a 
computer program that's first past the post 
when it comes to increasing your chances 
of picking a winner... 



There'* no way that 
ProPunter, or any sim- 
ilar program, can 
guarantee you a win- 
ner. But It can increase 
the chances of picking 
a horse that is likely 
to do well.

erally mess about. You can also use the pro- 
gram for just keeping data on horses, but this 
option is much better for hard disk uses 
because the database ean easils overfill flop- 
pies. It's good, but it's hungry for disk space. 

Would I buy it? Well, to be honest, proba- 
bly not. but that's not because it doesn't work, 
and not because it costs a lot. A ton is a lot of 
money, but even the poorest crusty with an 
Amiga could win the money back within a 
month if they enter the data correctly and get 
that all-important stroke of luck. 

No. my reservation is that I just don't 
have the time to use this sort of program. Each 
race takes about half an hour or more to enter 
the data and two or three minutes to analyse. 

ProPunter is a great program, but it has a 
lousy interface, so unless you are serious about 
gambling, you probably won't have the neces- 
sary staying power to get the best out of it. O 




It tokes time to feed 

all the data into 

ProPunter, but the 

results are Impressive. 



STRAIGHT FROM THE HORSE'S MOUTH 



This program doesn't just look for the winning horse. 
Instead, It computes a horse's value. A valuable horse 
Is one which has a very good chance of winning a 
race, but with odds that make it seem unlikely to win. 

Valuable horses therefore have good odds and 
are the best ones to bet on; whether you put your 
money on it to be the outright winner, to be placed (fin- 
ish in the first two), or whether you go for an each way 
bet (the horse finishing in the first three). 

Usually, the odds that you are given by a bookie 
are simply the end product of how much money Is 



riding on it. The better the popular opinion of a horse, 
the poorer the odds you get from a bookie. 

However, it's because many punters choose their 
horses because of Its name, or because its the 
favourite that an expert system like this Is worth buy- 
ing. An expert system is the computer equivalent of a 
real-lite human expert. You teed in all the information it 
needs, and It gives you the computer answer to a prob- 
lem. Expert systems are the nearest thing we have to 
artificial people inside computers. And this Is a 
damnably good one.

Hard drive back-up ■ £59.99 ■ Lyppens Software Productions 



ALONG WITH THE speed and accessibility 
of a hard drive comes a minor nightmare: the 
risk of a head crash. You're guaranteed at leasl 
one sleepless night during your hard-drive 
owning days, unless you regularly back-up 
your data to a separate medium. Generally 
there are two ways of doing this: to a tape- 
streamer (which could cost around £200 for a 
good one), or to a ton of floppy disks (which 
takes ages and could also cost a small fortune). 
Surely there must be an easier way? 

Perhaps there is now. thanks to VBS, a 
rather unspectacular looking bit of software 
and hardware. Inside VBS' video cassette- 
style box you will find very little 10 look at. 
but it's what it does that counts. There's one 
25-way D-type connector with two phono 
(CINCH) leads wired in. one standard phono 
(CINCH) lead, a 40-page manual and a floppy 
disk containing the VBS software. 

Setting it up is easy, and there arc dia- 
grams to help you just in case. First, you plug 
the D-typc connector into the serial port of 
your Amiga and then connect the black phono 
plug to your VCR's video output. The other 
lead (with a red phono plug) connects to your 
monitor's composite input if you have one. 



although this isn't essential. Finally, the sepa- 
rate phono lead connects to your Amiga's 
composite video output and your VCR's video 
input. And that's it! The software can check 
you've done it all correctly when you run it. 

The software part of VBS is equally sim- 
ple to gel to grips with. It's hard drive 
installable but it also runs from floppy, which 
is useful if your hard drive version gets cor- 
rupted. The program runs from Workbench or 
CL1. and uses normal text-filled windows to 
show directories and files. Simple buttons 
guide you around the system. 

VBS is a very flexible system (hat provides 
four different types of back-up. It can cope 
with hard drive and floppy disk back-ups in 
two distinct styles. The one you're most likely 
in use is the Filesysieni Backup which copies 
each flic and directory, enabling you lo 
retrieve individual flies later. 

The other style is the Track-by-track 
Backup which copies the entire disk, reading 
raw data from each track sequentially. This 
makes the back-up procedure quicker, but 
doesn't enable you to restore separate files. 
Instead, the lot must be restored in one go. 



Having a hard drive is like having a 
pet or a child - they need constant 
attention in order to keep them safe. 
Neil Jackson turns baby-minder and 
vets the latest low-cost backup system. 



Ilk- VBS system also uses .1 spare llopp\ 
disk as a log file which keeps track of the files 
and directories saved to video tape. Ii stores 
the names and lengths of the original files for 
comparing against the data read back in. thus 
providing a high degree of error checking. 

At back-up time, the feedback loop from 
the VCR (via the serial port) keeps a constant 
watch on the data being sent to the VCR. 
which improves the error checking. There is 
also a verify option which you can use to 
check tapes against the data on the original 
disk. In tests. VBS only failed to save three 
medium-sized files to video properly, in a 
batch of over 240 Mb - a stunning success rate. 

VBS is simple to set up and easy to oper- 
ate. It even checks that the leads are connected 
correctly, thanks to the feedback loop. This 
works on the premise that if it doesn't 'see" the 
data that it's sending down the other end of the 
connection, then the leads are missing. 

As an alternative to a bona- fide tape- 
streamer. VBS is a strong contender. It's 
simple to use. and it's dirt-cheap when com- 
pared to a streamer and tapes. It has a high 
degree of reliability when used with good 
quality videotapes (we haven't tested it with 
used tapes - it's not recommended). 

The only drawbacks you're likely to 
encounter arc ti) your video must have phono- 
style inputs and outputs for video signals or 
you'll need to get a different lead made up. 
nid (ii) if you don't have a composite monitor 
it may mean you can't watch the data being 
saved to tape, though you can still operate the 
software and sec the important info. 

If you still think you can't afford the won- 
derful VBS. work out how much you could 
lose if you didn't have it. It's a clear-cut case 
really, isn't it? £> 



Fast, simple to set up 
and easy to operate.

CAPTAIN DIAMONDS PART EXCHANGE CENTRE 



Why bother with an expensive Hard disk for your A500, when you can get 
an incredible part exchange deal. 

For example, if you were considering buying a 42Mb GVP Hard Disk for your 
A500 it would cost you £299.95, why not think about a part exchange deal 
instead. You could P/X your A500 for £75 against the amazing A 1200 with a 
40Mb Hard Disk already built in and then you would only effectively have to 
pay another £155 on top of the £299.95 you were already going to pay, 
giving you a total of only £454.95 for the very latest in technology from 
Amiga. 

YOU KNOW A PART EXCHANGE MAKES SENSE

Know an octave from a 

semitone? Well learn that 

and then some with Virgin's 

new music education CD 

software. Can it turn your 

kids into mini Mozarts? 

Paul Tyrcll tunes in ... 

FOR THOSE OF us who were not as musi- 
cally inclined as Mo/art in our earlier yean, 
learning any musical instrument for the first 
lime is a real struggle. Salvation could lv 
within reach, though, in the form of this new 
package from Virgin. 

The potential of the CD drive and CDTV 
software hasn't been fully utilised yet. previ- 
ous releases are proof of that. So is Musicolor 
going to he the orchestral hit to set the CDTV 
alight or is it just .mother uninspiring diminu- 
endo? Well it's based on the Tobin System; an 
acclaimed music leaching method which sub- 
stitutes notes of the octave with colours so thai 
Ihey can be remembered more easily. 

Mush I'hir is a glossy and attractive home- 
study course that's divided into 20 progressive 
stages. It aims to help students progress from a 
simple knowledge of music theory to full- 
blown composition. 

The lessons' style overall is quite juvenile, 
even though the recommended student's age is 
seven and upwards. For the younger utter, 
though. Musicolor is going to be fun thanks 10 
an easy-lo-understand interface, excellent use 
of pastel colours and a host of animal friends 
to lead the way through each lesson. 

A comprehensive, step-by-slep instruction 
section in the first lesson introduces simple 
icons used throughout the course. Students 
are taught about different areas of music the- 
ory, beginning with simple concepts such as 
pitch and note-length, before being subjected 
to more complex topics such as sixteenths and 
icirachords I his leads, it .ill goes well, and ilk- 
student understands. 10 a rudimentary knowl- 
edge of composition principles. 





Music learning package ■ £49.99 ■ Virgin 



MUSICOLOR is 
available from 
Virgin 
081-960 2255 



Older students will 
find the overall style a 
bit juvenile, but ihey 
can still glean plenty 
from this informative 
musical package. 




The seven notes which form the octave 
(along with an additional 'c'l. are depicted by 
seven different coloured creatures who intro- 
duce demonstrations ol ihe different topic- 
areas. Association between these and ihe musi- 
cal notes is encouraged constantly and is even 
reinforced by songs on occasion. 

Other teaching devices are regular! \ used 
such .is engaging puzzles which have simple 
answers. I feel though, that the use of '\es' 
and 'no' icons to respond to questions - rather 
than 'equal' and 'unequal* - would be more 
appropriate for the age of the audience in some 
areas of ihe course. 

Another impressive aspect ot the package is 
the regular appearance of colouring-hook sec- 
lions, which encourages vet more use of those 
colours as a reminder of their musical equiva- 
lent. These break up the learning proc es s and 
maintain interest while adopting the guise of a 
simple paint package, which enables ihe 
student to Hood areas of the screen with diff- 
erent colours. 

Most beneficial to the learning process 
seems to be the sheer number of sections, 
because they allow ihe student (or teacher/par- 
ent i to gauge the learning period - a lesson a 
day would provide an incentive for study and 
the ioundations of a greater understanding of 
basic musical theory. 

Infuriatingly enough, Musicolor falls 
down on the siandard of its samples! Defying 
the obvious advantage of ihe CI) medium, ihe 



program sports some samples which are purely 
functional and unmistakably svnthesised. 
when time could have been spent producing an 
authentic set of instruments - vel another dis- 
appointing neglect of the CDTV's potential. 

The complete package is an excellent 
iniroduciion to musical theory and a valuable 
aid 10 teachers/parents who are looking for an 
accessible way of introducing children to 
music. Students will be captivated and eager to 
return to completed lessons, while reinforcing 
their knowledge and at the same lime having a 
greal deal of fun. O

BUYER'S ADVICE 



Mail 
with

I 







Although high street retailors may be the most obvious place to buy an Amiga and its software, the place where 
find the best advice and af ler-sales service is your local independent computer retailer. 



THKRK ARK MANY avenues open lo the Amiga 
owner who is in search of software and hardware tor 
their machine. It' it's games you're alter then you can 
go to one of the high street retailers, but they are by 
and large bandwagon jumpers who are only out lo 
make a quick profit from our industry. They cant usu- 
ally offer buying advice, and often they don't offer the 
chance to play the games, they onl\ Mock new and 
big games and they usjally charge the lull recom- 
mended retail price. 

For people after serious software, the picture is 
even bleaker. Do HMV WH Smith. Our Price et al 
stock PageScrter .*. I think not. And if they did could 



the\ tell you it ii will be compatible with youi 4 Ml* 
Workbench 2.04 machine with a GVP hard drive? No! 

Most towns don't even have a shop where you can 
buy a GVP A500 HD8+ in the first place. So what's 
the solution to your shopping requirements? Well, mail 
order of course. Just lake a flip through the pages of 
this very magazine, and I bet you'll find games that arc 
reviewed in this issue at up to £10 off list price. I bet 
you'll find several shops advertising A12(X)/600 hard 
drives, and I bet you'll find adverts for many items of 
Amiga hardware that you never even knew existed 
never mind being able to get them in your own town. 

But these are touch times economically, and a few 



SUPPORT YOUR LOCAL 
COMPUTER SHOP! 

One of the most pleasant ways to get soft hard- 
ware for your machine is to support your local 
independent computer shop. They are usually 
run by pleasant, knowledgeable enthusiasts who 
can and will assist you in any way possible. 
Unlike a lot of high street retailers the staff actu- 
ally know how to turn an Amiga on. and can even 
run software on it. And if something goes wrong. 
you know where to take it back to. and who to 
speak to. Independent shops are what made the 
Amiga the success it is. long before the big multi- 
ples came in with their price cutting, we only sell 
em attitude. 

H your local independent doesn't conform to 
this idyllic picture that we have painted, then why 
not try a mail order company. But if your local 
independent shop offers a service you can't get 
anywhere else, and many do. give them your 
business. They sell a full range of Amigas and a 
plethora of software and add-on peripherals - in 
the long run you know it makes sense. 



mail order retailers have gone out of business recently. 
so how can >ou be sure buying by mail is the right 
thing to do? Well firstly, you can order through a com- 
pany who advertises in Amiga Format. We can't offer 
an absolute guarantee, but we've had a long relation- 
ship with most of our avert iscrs. and can vouch for 
their credibility. After all. if a trader goes bust, we can 
lose money too! 

Secondly you can use your brain a bit. before you 
send large amounts of money (whether it be a cheque. 
postal order or credit card number) through the 
post, just think for a few seconds, and bear the points 
below in mind... O 



AMIGA FORMATS TOP TEN MAIL ORDER TIPS 



1 Before you st?nd any money, ring the 
supplier to confirm that the product 
you want is in stock; when the delivery is 
likely to be made, and enquire about 
returning unwanted goods and the sup- 
plier's refund policy. 



2 



Find out about hidden extras like 
postage and packing charges, and 

whether the prices you are quoted include 

VAT or not. 



3 



Beware of <iny companies that do 
not include an address in their 
advertisement. 



4 



Beware of any company that 
always on ar> answering machine. 



is 



5 



If you are ordering goods of more 
than £100 in value, always try to use 
a credit card if you can, because then you 
are likely to be insured against unscrupu- 
lous retailers (if you aren't sure, check with 
the credit card company). 



Failing that, use a crossed cheque or 



6 

through the post. 



postal order. Never send cash 



7 



If a problem does arise, then simply 
contact the supplier in the first 
instance and calmly and politely explain 
what your problem is. In most cases 
these things are merely a mix-up or a mis- 
understanding that the supplier will 
happily put right for you. 



8 



If you really think that you do have a 
genuine grievance with a company, 
and that you do not think it can be 
resolved, then you might consider contact- 
ing your local authority's trading standards 
officer (the number should be in the 
phone directory). 

9 Always keep records of correspon- 
dence with any mail order company 
that you deal with and also make a note 
of where and when you saw the product 
advertised. 



10 



If the worst comes to the worst 
then you can always go to your 
local small claims court, or get legal advice 
from the Citizen's Advice Bureau.

This ii the standard scales practice menu - the blue circles 
mark the trail of the rising and descending notes. 

FastFrei 2 is a scales lutoring system for lead guitar 
ami it's a CLR Liccnsewarc product, which basically 
means it costs £3.50. There's a lot of Liccnsewarc 
around (hat isn't worth (his much, hut this one is. 

Quite simply, all you do is select the scale (ha( you 
wanl to practise your guitar at. and the speed, and the 
computer plays it for you. It indicates all the finger 
positions while it plays. The idea is that you can prac- 
tice your scales without having to try and figure it out 
from a book. 

This is program is excellent - all right, so it's PAL 
only, but getting a real guitar player to show you a 
scale is quite frustrating. Most of them either a) can't 
teach or b) simply cannot be bothered with something 
as repetitive as scales. 

If you genuinely want a computer program to help 
you become more fluent at playing lead guitar, gel this. 
It takes effort and practice, but it's more compliant 
than getting your mate to show you how. I'm almost 
tempted to nip out and buy a guitar.

Do you want a cheap word processor? Really cheap? 
This one will cost you £4.50. This is a poor man's 
Protect, Powertcxi works even on a humble 5I2K 
Amiga, it has a built-in spelling checker (make your 
own dictionary) and word count feature, and it can 
double side print too. The old underline, bold and italic 
printing styles arc in there, together with a neat little 
program to select a different printer driver. 

It's nice to see that the author {Gary Stimson) has 

KASTLE KUMQUAT 

17 BIT 1716 

This game uses an old plot with a new perspective. 
You are your king's personal fruit picker. You've 
got to enter Kastle Kumquat and collect fruit. 
There are nasties to avoid and huge pits of boiling 
lava to keep you on your toes. Couldn't I just go to 
Salnsbury's instead? 

The game Is totally joystick controlled, 
and viewed with a top-down perspective. The 
gameplay consists of you running and jumping, 
and er. opening the odd door with a key. Daniel 
Leyden did the sound and coding, Colin Walker 
did the graphics. 

It's not brilliant, but ft certainly is addictive. 
The music beats along in the background, and this 
fs one Instance where the music adds a lot to the 
game. It's not too difficult, but It's trickier than the 
average commercial game. PAL only, good game- 
play, get it 




Still paying for Christmas? Just paid the electricity, gas and telephone 
bills all in one go as well? Feeling poor? Well then save some cash 
with some dirt cheap (and Pat McDonald recommended) PD...

made it easy on newcomers to gel their printers work- 
ing. It's a very good program, considering that it was 
written in AMOS and compiled. Poweriext installs to 
hard disk and works with virtually all Amigas. Ideal 
for writing general documents like letters, invoices, 
memos and so on. I don't Ihink I'd like to write a hook

Tnis is not a program that can be easily categorised. 
Matt Hall set out to remove the need for all the little 
bils of paper in his life, and ended up with an Amiga

As well as the oddress book and diary on display here, 
VW can keep records of your video and disk collections. 

sized notepad, card index and diary program. Because 
ii was written in AMOS, the program will not sit in the 
background behind Workbench, which means that you 
have to run the program every time you need to get at 
your information. Also included is a handy little 
AmigaDOS guide. It's not brilliant (most of the infor- 
mation is oldish) but if you've just bought a second- 
hand 1 .3 machine this program could be a real boon. 

It's user friendly, pretty and quite useful if you 
have nothing better. If you have a database like 
Prodota MF43) you'll probably wonder why anyone 
would want such mundane information 10 hand, when 
there's much more interesting data to organise. 



GAME 



CHRIS SWIFT 




The Entity playing area is quite small - you'll probably 
notice the pixels. But the gameplay is good and original. 

Just for once I'm going to break my rule of not men- 
tioning programs that I received straight from the 
author. The reason is that Entity is a very special game.

Aaron Sethi has come up with an Interesting pro- 
gram. It's for doing long animations, but Instead of 
painstakingly plotting every pixel you draw a 
series of quadrilaterals on different frames. This 
means that you can't get much detail on your ani- 
mation, but you can build up a rough idea of a 
movie very quickly. 

Up to 40 shapes can be put on each page. This 
translates to a couple of minutes of animation on a 
1Mb machine, which is miles by Deluxe Paint stan- 
dards. To be honest, there are millions of features 
that could be added or improved upon, but for a 
good concept and a reasonable first attempt It gets 
my thumbs up. 

The disk Includes the AMOS source code as 
well as the compiled version. Give the dude some 
feedback and the shareware fee (£5) and I'm sure 
hell do a much better version. Oh, PolyEd is a 
pretty silly name If It can only draw quadrilaterals. 



very simple, but innovative, playable and incredibly 
addictive indeed. 

You control a set of lines, called the Stix. The Stix 
shines towards the mouse pointer. You direct the Stix 
to wipe out various nasties, in order to gain energy. If 
you run out of energy, then you lose a lite. Lose all 
your lives and it's game over. Sounds really simple. 
but conirolling the Stix is like no other game I've ever 
seen. I rem em be i games like this from early Amiga 
demos, but I haven't seen one like it lor a while. 

Entity is a brilliant concept and if you value good, 
old-fashioned gamepla> more than pretty graphics then 
get it from the guy. enclosing your £5 registration lee. 
And if anybody rips off his idea, commercial or PD. 
we'll all know about it - so forget it. Gel an official 
licence from the author before releasing your own ver- 
sions. You gel the AMOS source code and ii works 
on all Amiga v

The actual information that this presents is in the form of 
crunched ASCII files - simple but a bit boring. 



Are you a frustrated writer? Do you want to see your 
name in print? Want to submit poems, slum stories or 
comic strips but don't know who wants them? Get this! 
WD is a Hypcrbook presentation. It lists over 300 
names and addresses of magazines that accept contri- 
butions from unheard of writers. Put together by James 
Morrison (no. not the James Morrison) during his spare 
lime. OK, so it's not quite the Writers mul Artists 
Yearbook, but it is more up to date (within reason) and 
I hope he can keep it current and maybe expand it. 
Costs £3.50 and and it's Licenseware. 




Mammoth animations, but it's o shame it con't save 
frames in IFF format for later editing with DPamt. 



KITCHEN

This is a complete view ol oN the kitchen units on view ol 
the some time. Normally you'd only see one or two. 



Paul Whit worth has been a very busy bloke. He's been 
luting out his new kitchen, and to give him a helping 
hand so that il all fitted properly, he used IntruCAD 
from 4F38 Coverdisk. To help other people in a simi- 
lar situation (DIY enthusiasts with IntmCAD) he's 
released his designs as a set of drawings. 

\l! \ou have lo do 10 use them is drag 1 he parts and 
drawings icons to a copy of your IntmCAD disk - you 
can just load them from the supplied disk but it can be 
a bit of a pain. Mind you. the Hies on this disk are big- 
ger than the free space that's available on the 
IntmCAD Coverdisk. Which means if you do try to 
copy them straight to your disk, it will overflow. (Oh 
yes. anyone who still can't get IntroCAD to print 
should load Workbench first, then click on the 
IntmCAD icon). Turn off any external drives if the pro- 
gram still won't print. 

Rather than just loading a complete drawing, you 
can load the component parts - plan, side and top 
views arc all included. Together with some in-depth 
readme files, it's a disk many people will find useful. 

You don't believe me? Believe it or not. designing 
kitchen units is probably the number one task for small 
CAD programs like IntroCAD. OK. so there aren't as 
many companies doing this as say. in the late Eighties. 
After this disk gels around there'll he even less. You 
can pay a fortune for someone to come round with a 
portable PC and show off his designs. Now you don't 
have to rely on the middlemen - you can take Paul's 
designs and alter them to taste!

Lots of different tests for helping to cure sick Amiga s — 
not amazing but damn useful in certain situations. 

You can spend over £50 on diagnostic software - that 
is, .1 set ol programs that you can 11111 on sick Amiga* 
to work out what (if anything) is wrong with them. I've 
seen better and worse commercial programs, but for a 
bargain price this will test out most of the common 
failure areas on an Amiga. 

It's very simple to use. All you do is load the disk, 
hit one of the function keys and the diagnostic program 
starts working. Some ol them require you to hold down 
Shift too, but that's not a chore. Pressing the Help key 
gels you hack to the menu. The size of the menu means 
that it's PAL only. Although, if you are willing to have 
.1 dig with the Shell, the programs should work on 
YISC machines. O

PD MUSIC & GFX DEMOS 



3D DEMO 2 




Excuse me, but I've olways wondered if warriors wear 
any pants under their loincloths... 

GcKxi grief! Another mcgadcmo hits arrived on lo the 
Amiga scene alter the lasl couple of months of am 
mations and music. I thought that we'd seen the lasl of 
vector polygons and plasma effects. Not so. though, 
and fortunately this demo is by Anarchy, who are well 
known for their impressive coding. 

Subtitled 'A monochrome nightmare - in color". 
3D Demo 2 contains the usual glen/ vectors and star 
Holds, bul ihe\ .tie broken up In some excellent pieces 
of artwork by Slash. The best example of this is a 
hand-drawn copy of HR Giger's Shaft No 7. which 
was original!) drawn in l u (V> b\ the man famous for 
the Alien monster, and the graphics in DarkSeed 
tAf-U -72 per cent). The graphics are haeked-up by a 
good soundtrack, which makes use of atmospheric 
instrument samples played over a rave St) le hackbeat. 

Nicely put together, with the added bonus of an 
interactive section at the end where you move around a 
3D space scene using your joystick. 




WACK PD, TWO DISKS 

Here are two disks filled with music and graphics trom 
well-known coders Andromeda. There are nine dilfet 
ent tunes here, but they're all pretty much similar in 
style - funky bass line and drums, and catchy top end: 





Interested in just what your Amiga can do? 
Then what better way than to follow what 
coders, animators and musicians the world over are 
doing in the Public Domain. Andy Nuttall reviews what's new 

THE JOURNEY 

1 7-B4T, DISKS 2339 





One of the excellent hi-res screens from Mirror, bul unfor- 
tunately they're only a quarter screen in sizt. 

and they each use the same selection of samples. 
Although there are only four pictures on the disk they 
are good quality, and the first. Orthlund Dragon (pic- 
tured here) is excellent. Graphic artists on the Amiga. 
especially ones who concentrate on fantass \t\le-. are 
celling better all the tune. 

Looking at the possibilities opening up with the 
new AI200. and its graphical power - along with 2Mb 
of chip RAVI for holding samples - the prospects for 
future demos such as this arc mouth-watering indeed. 
Who's going to be the first with an AI200-specific 
demo. I wonder? 




The original volume of Comic Art featured some 
excellent hand-drawn Images. Cyber, the artist, 
has been working hard on a wide range of charac- 
ters, from the well-known Incredible Hulk to the 
less well-known Spawn, who hails from a new 
company called Image Comics. The use of colour 
is very impressive, because when using interlaced 



hl-res mode only 16 colours are on-screen, but 
Cyber has used black-line shading to great effect 
so the images are detailed and colourful. 

My one complaint about volume one was it 
didn't have any accompanying music, but Cyber's 
now added his own soundtrack, which Isn't bad for 
a first effort. So no complaints this time. 





Spawn, a new Image Comics hero, looks set to rival the 
top heroes with his, er, clouds of green smoke. 



NEEDS TWO DRIVES 




You don't have to go to the Pyrenees to see purple sky 
ond wonderful mountains you know! 

After taking an age to load, The Journey - as befits its 
name lakes you on a journey through several fractal 

landscapes created using Scenery Knimaior. This pro- 
gram, similar to \ ista, enables you to create highly 
complicated landscape scenes, in any of the Amiga 
modes, and also to animate them. 

The highly diverse still frames show good imagina- 
tion and excellent use of colour - see the picture here 
foi example. As an added bonus, three different ani- 
mated sequences are included, which take you on a 3D 
trip through the fractal worlds. It's certainl> been done 
before, but if you haven't seen such a slideshow yet. 
then this is as good as any. 



F1 GIRLS 



DEMO 




And here he is again, menacing as ever, stupendously 
setting fire to his hands. 



An example of the more cortoon-style screens from f I 
Girls. Most others are purile ond crap. 

Ilmmm. Let's see. Take a Camel cigarettes logo, some 
scantily clad women, throw in a few Formula One

PD MUSIC & GFX DEMOS (Ti 



HAUNTED 

VIRUS-FREE PD 

Given the popularity of Eric 
Schwartz's animations, no- 
one thought that somebody 
would come up with a piece 
of work to match his. Now. 
Roddy McMillan has shown that he can match his 
role-model. The Haunted is a 10 Mb, six-minute ani- 
mation that Roddy has entered in BltMovie '93. On 
the evidence of this anim. he'll win for sure. 





Roddy has developed his style to retain the 
feel of the early, characters, such as Duncan the 
Dung Beetle, but improved on the graphics no end. 
The story is good, but a little predictable. Maxel 
Mite is merrily driving along, listening to the radio, 
when his tyre blows. Guess what? The nearest sign 
of life is at 'Hades Manor', a pleasant des-res in 
suburbia (er, well, maybe not); and the soul (sic) 
resident of said mansion is a ghost - The Spook. 





The graphics are excellent and the sound 
effects are superb - the lightning effect is a crystal- 
clear sample, straight out of your better-than- 
average horror film. The most impressive sample, 
occurs when Maxel is driving along, and switches 
on his radio. The sound which comes out is incred- 
ibly realistic! I must admit I'm impressed. This is an 
animation of the highest quality, and deserves 
every piece of critical acclaim it receives. 




The thing about cartoon cars is that they always, always But, wide-eyed, with his hand on something that surely 
lurch along the road which can't do the engine any good. isn't part of the steering-wheel, Maxel comes a cropper.. 



...only to find himself on the doorstep of Hades Manor, 
holiday home of the aptly named Mr Spook. Spookyl

references, and what do you gel? Well, alter seeing the 
first few images from this slideshow. all you seem lo 
gL-i is a load of old male-orienlatcd twaddle - such as 
pictures of lils V hums and women cuddling formula 
( >ne racing ear drivers. Call me prudish, old fashioned 
or whatever you like but I reckon ii's all a hii sad 
really, especially as ihe graphics look like poorly digi- 
tised CM screens. 

Having said that, dotted around every now and ihen 

are some pictures which look quite cartoony in style. 
showing I I ilri\ers and their babes with heavil) carica- 
tured features - such as huge while teeth and a juiling 
square jaw. These are pretty good, and look as though 
lhe\ have been drawn by somebody with a modicum of 
talent. In fad these pictures are Ihe demo's only real 
saving grace. 

Because of the differing styles. I'm not sure what 
ihe idea of the slideshow is. It could be intended to tit- 
illate (in which case it's quite sad), or it could be to 
make people laugh. If that's the case, whs are there 
loads of shots of scantily clad women? The artist obvi- 
ously possesses some talent, but he (or she) should put 
more effort into the continuity of future slideshow s. so 
thai a similar style remains throughout. 



TRSI - WICKED 
SENSATION 

1 7-BTT, DISKS 2342 




The second of this month's megademos is TRSI's 
entry to last year's World Of Commodore demo show 
in Frankfurt. Here, standard megademo parts are mixed 
in with a Krafiwcrk-siyle rotating head - you know, 
the one from the Musiquv Nun-Stop video - and some 
superb hand-drawn graphics. 




Looking more like an iron Maiden T-shirt than a PD demo, 
TRSI's graphics are impressive and colourful. 



Here's a challenge for all you demo coders and 
would-bes out there. We reckon it's about time 
somebody put together a really different kind of 
soundtrack for their demos, one that really shows 
off what the Amiga and a bit of imagination can do. 
We want you to push back the frontiers of 
Amiga music; to put the usual rave and prog rock 
styles on a back burner, and really go for a new 
style. Whether it be Seattle-style grunge, heavy 
industrial, cyberpunk, speed metal, thrash - any- 
thing to spice up the current scene. We know that 
you're all into more than one style of music, so let 
that show in your demos! 

PRIZES! 

The author of the best demo. In the judges' opin- 
ions, will win an exclusive trophy commissioned 
specially for the challenge, a year's subscription to 
Amiga Format, and a high profile in this very tome. 



Get your disks together, and send them in to; 



30Monmouth Street, 



BA1 2BW 
to reach us no later than 31 June 1993. So get out 
and get coding! 



Anybody and everybody may apply, except 
employees of Future Publishing and their immedi- 
ate family. All original work will be considered by 
the panel of judges (that's the Amiga Format staff), 
and bribes of an alcoholic nature presented at 
Amiga Format Live will not be taken into consider- 
ation. That last bit was a lie. 



The head is made up of a number ol light-sourccd 
vector panels which move quickly to give a very 
smooth rotation - similar in appearance 10 the standard 
light -sou reed vector hall (which also appears later in 
this demo). The graphic stills range from a bi/arre fighl 
scene with lots ol swords Hying and a disembodied 
head, to an excellent drawing of a lace. 

The music is of ihe usual driving hack heal type 
nothing really very new here, but overall the demo is 
nicel) done. 



T-, 



Just so that you know what's in and what's not we 
ask a Public Domain library to tell us what their 
top-selling demos of the month are.

AMIGA ADVICE 



TOO MANY ERRORS 

FROM: PETER RICHARD WOOD, CO VENTRY 

Recently 1 gut myself ;in A 600. I wanted to use il as 
a serious machine, und I got plenty nl" u«mkI pieces of 
software from your Coverdisk. My priorities are 
word processing, desktop publishing, database use 
and games, in that order. 

The problem is that I often find Unit the 
Coverdisk Collection programs contain read/write 
errors that prevent me from using them. I dutifully 
back them up using the Diskcopy command, but 
afterwards I am still left with a dud disk. I sually I 
can use the program*- - but I have great difficult) in 
saving any projects on to the disks. 

Please can you help me. I am angry and annoyed 
- I got the Amiga to help me work, and him- 
spent far loo long messing about with clumsy 
interfaces, huri disks and no manuals. After 
Diskdoctering the disks, they are still in a stale of 
hopeless corruption. In be honest. I could ha\e 
written out my work in half the time using a pen 
stuck up my ( wi/p - Ed). 





Most factory fresh A600s and A 1200s have swarf y disk 
drives - use a vacuum deaner to suck the rubbish outl 

To be honest. I really think that you've jumped in at 
the deep end - the Amiga is unique as computers go. 
But anyway, here's how you go about saving your Tiles 
to blank, formatted disks. These disks arc always 
called Empty by default. 

When you save a file on the Amiga, the program 
usually defaults to the drive that the program was 
started from. So when you type in a name to save your 
work under (let's say My Work) the Amiga will try 10 
write to your Coverdisk collection. 

If. instead, you ask a program to save to 
Empty:MyWork, then the computer will ask for a disk 
called Empty - that is. a blank one - and alter it 
has been inserted, your work will mste.ul be saved 
on that disk- 
It you were to rename a blank disk to. say . Data. 
and then saved your work to Data: My work, then again 
the disk would ask for a disk called Data. Don't think 
it's a case of just putting the disk in and leaving it - 
usually you will have to swap between disks as you are 
saving data. That's one of the reasons why two disk 
drives make life much easier. 

If you have a disk which works, but which has lots 
of read/write errors on. then the best thing 10 do is 
copy all the good files to a new disk. First, load 
Workbench. Then formal a ilisk. and call it Neweopy. 
Then type this in the shell: 



What? How? Where? Why? Who cares? Pat McDonald does 
Read some wise words to find out the Amiga reasons 



Copy .i : lata: Co New 

If the original disk was not called Prodata, then 
change lhat (0 what the disk was called {Scribble!, 
Vista, or whatever). The amount of disk swapping 
involved on a single-drive machine is incredible 
(remember to wail until the drive light goes out before 
swapping disks). Hut afterwards, you will have all the 
good files on a different disk. Put the Workbench back 
in the dri\e and type: 

Insert the New copy disk, and type: 

DFO: 

This will install the Neweopy disk, making il bootable. 
Finally, rename the Neweopy disk to what the old disk 
was called (in this case. I'nufata) and \ou should have 
a fixed disk with no read/write errors or funny 
unformatted tracks on. II you had two disk drives, then 

you could pul the Neweopy disk in your second drive 
and then type: 

Copy all from Prodata: to DFl: 

Ins- i ; : 

This would mean no disk swaps at all. Life is reall\ so 
much sweeter with a second drive - you can use | sin- 
gle Amiga drive for serious purposes, but it can drive 

\ou mad.

GVP FAN 

FROM: CRJ (ilPPV. B()l RNEMOUTH 
I recently bought myself second-hand <»\l' 
hard drive for my A 500. The problem is lhat some- 
times I cannot seem to load or save files - the drive 
continually throws a 'read write' error message up 
in my face. Usually when this happens though. 
Ihe fan starts speeding up and slowing down. After 
the first time it happened, my real lime cloek 
was 'not found'. 

This situation occurs randomly and usually after 
it's been on for a few minutes or longer. What is 



HARD DISK SAVE 

FROM: DUNCAN WALKRR, BECCLES 

I have recently upgraded from an A500 with an 
extra (loppy drive to an A1200 with an 80 Mb hard 
disk. The difference Is quite astounding tor my 
DTP work. Can you recommend a good hard disk 
backup program (preferably Public Domain) 
because my hard disk is half full, and I'd hate to 
lose all my flies? 

If you want a really easy-to-use commercial program, 
get Quarterback. The shareware program Mr Backup 
can do the same job. but it isn't quite so easy to use 
Mr Backup Pro is the commercial version, and if you 
register your copy of Mr Backup with the author Mark 
Rintret then you can buy the full commercial program if 
you find the shareware version not quite good enough. 




Hard drives, like this GVP, contain moving parts, and 
faults ore often the result of loose connections. 

wrung and how do I fix it? Can I disconnect Ihe fan. 
because the noise really irritates me? 

The problem is almost certainly a loose connection. 
Open up the drive and check over all the connecting 
leads (the ones taking the power to the hard disk unit 
are especially susceptible to slipping!. Give them all a 
good shove and a prod, disconnect the two wires which 
are connei ted u> the Ian. and all should be well. 

A FEW QUESTIONS...

sound enhancer and no extra disk drive - yes, I 
ha\e pulled most of my hair out! The first pieee of 
serious software that I bought was the Pen Pal word 
processor. After a few months of using this. I am

ier for myself. If you could answer some of my

AMIGA ADVICE 



172 



XD 







The Canon BJ type printers are very good lor DTP, giving 
superb mono printouts without breaking the bank. 

questions that would be a big help, since I am quite 
new to the computer scene: 

1) I want to do posters, and maybe a fanzine, but 
I'm unsure about the range of fonts available. What 
is the difference between bitmap and outline fonts? 
Which are better and where can I get them from? 

Bitmap fonts are made out of square pixels. So when 
you use a bitmap font at a large size, your letters look 
very jagged. With outline fonts, the shapes arc stored 
as lines and angles. Making an outline font bigger does 
not result in horrible jagged edges - which means out- 
line fonts are better for DTP. You can get bitmap fonts 
from various Public Domain libraries, but two that are 
good for outline fonts arc George Thompson Services 
(0707 391389) and EM Compugraphic (0255 431389). 

2) Is there an inexpensive DTP program which will 
allow me to use an unlimited number of fonts? 

No DTP program ever enables you to use an unlimited 
number of fonts. The amount of fonts you can use is 
dictated not by the software you are using, but by the 
amount of chip memory that you have. As standard, all 
A500 Pluses have 1Mb of chip memory. Another 1Mb 
can be added via the trapdoor underneath the machine 
- after that, all extra memory is fast RAM. 

3) I've noticed ads for PD clip art. Is this a worth- 
while source of material, and how is it produced? 



FROM: AL NORMAN, ASTORIA 

I own an A500 and an A2000. I'm considering buy- 
ing a Vortex accelerator with 4Mb of 32-bit RAM. 
But now the A4000 and A1200 are out, with full 32- 
bit architecture and the new AA chip set, it I buy 
the accelerator, I will have a 32-bit machine - but 
what about the AA chip set? Can I expect an AGA 
graphics card? After all, there are many other 
cards available, will there be an AGA version? 

No. The current graphics cards tor the A2000 and sim- 
ilar are designed so that they don't interfere with the 
Amiga's built-in graphics. If you were to plug in an 
AGA adaptor, the current Agnus and Denise chips 
would interfere with the the adaptor. 

If you were to buy a 24-bit graphics card, then you 
would have an Amiga with a better resolution than the 
A4000 or A1200. Hardware, like the Opalvision card, 
will not work with AA chip set games. How attached 
are you to your current machines - either take them up 
to professional levels (by buying a 24-bit graphics 
card) or get an A1200 and A4000 to replace them. 



There arc two types of clip art - bitmapped and outline 
(sometimes called proportional). Outline is much bet- 
ter, because you can scale it up without making it look 
horribly pixcllated. Believe it or not. but clip art is pro- 
duced by artists sitting down and drawing it. 

4> I have thought about a scanner and a digitiser - 
however, my bank manager won't allow me to get 
both at once. Which is better to go for first? 

A scanner is much better for DTP work. You can 
immediately scan printed material into your Amiga. A 
digitiscr requires either a video camera or video 
recorder - and quality varies depending on how much 
you spend on your video gear. 

5) I understand that DTP can require more than 
the 1Mb of memory I have at the moment. Is a hard 
drive the answer? Or will two disk drives work just 
as well? Also, what does 52 Mb with 8Mb of RAM 
mean? How should I judge a hard drive? 

A hard drive is simply one big disk (in the above 
example, of 52 Mb capacity). 1Mb (one megabyte) is 
the equivalent of one million characters of information. 
Programs and data load much, much faster than from 
floppy disks. Also, you can put all your fonts and clip 
art (as well as Workbench) on to your hard disk, saving 
you the trouble of hunting for a particular (loppy. 

Most A500/A500 Plus hard disks can have extra 
memory chips added too. This memory is fully usable 
by your computer as soon as you switch on. In the 
above example. 8Mb of extra memory would be added 
to your system, which should be adequate (if it isn't, 
tough, because that's the most fast memory that you 
can add to an A500 Plus). 

6) I am baffled by the huge range of memory 
expansions that are available - could you give me a 
few pointers? 

If you read the above information, then you will appre- 
ciate how big 1 Mb is. Personally. I recommend 
external memory expansions rather than internal ones 
(a 1Mb internal memory expansion is OK on an A500 
Plus, but anything bigger and you're asking for trou- 
ble). Chip memory is needed for graphics and sounds - 
programs and text can be stored in fast memory. 




Next, memory expansions come cither populated 
(with the memory chips) and unpopulated (without). 
The reason for this is that many people can get RAM 
chips at cheaper prices than shop traders - also. RAM 
chip prices go up and down all the time. 

In your case. 1 would either get a GVP hard drive 
with extra RAM. or a SupraRAM 500RX memory 
expansion. At least 2Mb of external RAM would help 
immensely - 1Mb of internal RAM is your first step, 
but you can never have enough memory. Even if you 
have a fully expanded 10 Mb RAM A500 Plus, pro- 
grams can still run out of memory! 

7) When using the Action Replay cartridge to 
obtain still pictures Trom inside games, are the 
results as good as the game? 




I use an A2000 to ossemble the Coverdlsks. I would 
never use one for serious graphic, though - too slow! 



The Action Replay 3 can grab IFF screens from many 
games — but the better looking games usually defeat It. 

Usually. However, if a game uses the copper chip to 
give finely graduated backgrounds, then this detail is 
lost on the final pictures. Action Replay cartridges are 
widely used by computer magazines to read the IFF 
pictures into professional DTP systems - in other 
words, we use them ourselves for just that purpose. But 
they don't work on all games. 

8) How do I copy parts of a Coverdisk on to a sepa- 
rate disk, rather than copying all of it? Is it easy? 

• 

No it's not. What you have to do is copy over the icon 
files (click and drag - that's easy) and also any associ- 
ated libraries (in the libs drawer), device drivers (in the 
devs drawer) or fonts (in the fonts drawer). What it 
comes down to is that you have to become au fait with 
copying individual files using the Shell. Alternatively. 
you could buy a frontend system (SID or SID 2 are 
shareware, and Directory Opus is commercial). 

9) I am using the Kpson LQ driver for the Canon 
printer. Is there a better driver available? 

Probably. Canon do a disk called Canon Print Studio - 
I suggest you contact them for more information. 1 
regret I have never seen it. or the resulting printout. 

10) Can I print out labels for audio and \ideo 
tapes? What program should I use, and where do I 
get the labels from? 

Yes you can. Either do your designs with a DTP pro- 
gram like PagcSetter. or you can just use a Public 
Domain utility like Label Print 3-5. As for the labels. 
get a local Yellow Pages and look under stationers or 
stationery supplies. 



AMIGA ADVICE 



1 1 1 What should I get firs! the DTP program or 
hardware expansions' 



I? 



The software. Always buy software before any hard- 
ware - you get a much better idea of what you need. 
However, the 1Mb internal memory expansion would 
be a good buy at the same time - you'll be able to do 
just enough to sec how much more you need! 



KROM: IK MARSHALL. Mill 
Whenever I quit Prodata, I am left with a blank 
Workbench screen or a CLI that won't recognise 
an\ commands when I hoot from the disk. Is there a 
way around this? 

PWMTA .1 II (c> Vw !«• 




I'rodata uses most of 1Mb just to work. Multitasking is 
not possible unless you have quite a lot of memory. 

Not really. Pnxlata clears down the Workbench in 
order to save on memory - if you had a fair chunk of 
memory (say 2Mb or more) then you could put a Run 
command in the c directory of ;i copy of the ( ownlisk. 
and edit the startup sequence oi the disk to: 

Run Prodata 

This would force the program to multitask, and so 
k\i\e the rest of the operating system intact. 

HAVE A BANANA 

FROM: CRAIG THORNTON. ANOl'S 

I have a problem with Transwrite (included with the 
7.oal software pack). To be precise, the spelling 
checker function puts up a requester for a disk 
called Spell, which wasn't included in the pack. 

For all the other people having trouble, here's 
how to solve it. Format a disk and name it Spell. 
Copy the file British.dct from the Transwrite disk to 
your Spell disk. If you have Workbench I. then sim- 
ply select Show/All files from the Window menu, 
and the file will appear, ready to be clicked and 
drained. Then double click on (he TransSpell icon, 
as it says in the manual. One working spell checker! 

Nice one. Here's how you do it on a 1.3 machine. 
which doesn't have the Show/All files feature. Load 
Workbench, and double click on the Shell icon. Type: 



Copy am Transwrite:British.pct 

Spell: 



to 



The disk name in the above example {Transwrite) may 
need to be changed it vour Transwrite disk is called 
something else. If. for example, the name under the 
disk icon was Banana, you would type: 

Copy from Banana: I' ■ I sh.pcC to Spell: 



Techno babble 

Do you know how to talk techie speak? Well, if you don't then 

» 

this little bit of jargon-busting should sort you out... 



Then double click on the TransSpell icon. Simple! 



• rr a 



rieraton hardware expansion that gives your 
Amiga a taster CPU. Often used with maths-intensive 
software where a standard processor is too slow, for 
programs called ray tracers' which literally trace the 
rays of light which bounce around a scene to produce 
a picture Also used to considerably speed up flight 
and other kinds ot simulations. 

Anim Brush: a brush is a small section of a graphic 
screen, cut out with a paint program like Deluxe Paint. 
Anim brushes are different small images with the 
same dimensions - for instance, a bird flapping its 
wings or an eye blinking. 

■Jitter: BLock Image TransfER device. Used for 
copying large areas of memory from A to B. or 
to combine different areas into one single image. 
Widely used to generate large graphic shapes in 
computer games. 

■ridgebeardi Commodores own IBM emulating 
device, featuring a complete PC computer on a single 
card Only fits A 1500 and above machines - enables 
use of standard PC cards. 

Chip RAMi memory accessible by the custom chips 
(Paula. Agnus. Denise) as well as the processor Used 
to store all graphics and sounds. Can be used by pro- 
grams too - with speed slow downs. 

CUt Command Line Interface. The program which 
enables you to type commands into AmigaDOS for 
standard operations like copying files or getting a 
directory Shell is more commonly used now. 

Copper: coprocessor. Used to generate subtly 
coloured backgrounds - this device «s built into the 
Agnus chip and it can alter colours while the screen is 
being generated. Executes instructions at the same 
time as the processor. 

CPU: Central Processing Unit. The decisionmaking 
chip, the one that tells everything else what to do It 
can be interrupted by custom hardware it its programs 
are m chip RAM. 

Past RAMi memory that's only accessible by the pro- 
cessor. Programs stored here run faster than those in 
chip RAM - hence the name. 

Frame grabber: device for capturing live video data 
and converting it into computer picture data Doesn't 
require a still video signal. Usually gives much better 
results than a video digitiser. which does the same |ob. 
except that the video must be paused 

Freezer cartridge: quasi-legal device tor examining 
programs while they are running. Usually with many 
useful built-in utilities which help overshadow its 

dubious origins. 



Hard drive; basically a big disk for keeping 
Workbench and all the serious software that you use. 
Works much faster than a floppy disk More and more 
games are becoming installable on to a hard drive. 

IFF: Interchange File Format. A standard way ot 
storing pictures and sounds, invented by Electronic 
Arts and adopted by Commodore. A single standard - 
practically all art programs can load and save pictures 
in this form, 



Kick i tart ■ the name of the set ot programs which 
are run when the Amiga is turned on. Also contains 
many library functions for use by programmers. Latest 
release is Kickstart 3. Other releases; 2. 1.3. 1.2. 1.1. 



»: Public Domain. Literally, software that is the prop- 
erty of everybody. PD disks can be freely copied by 
anyone, and you can also distribute them to whoever 
you want The correct term is Freeware' Shareware' 
(try before you buy) and Licenseware (commercial 
and non-distributable) also come under the same 
rough heading of "very cheap software". 

ROM: Read Only Memory. Memory that cannot be 
altered Widely used as the starling programs for com- 
puter systems that have just been turned on - ROMs 
remember things permanently 



Random Access Memory Memory that can be 
altered and re-altered many times. Typically, it does 
not remember what it contains when the computer's 
power is switched off. 

Scanneri hardware device for reading flat pictures 
from posters, newspapers and so on. and converting 
them into computer graphics Often used in desktop 
publishing to read m previously published images. 

Script filet a set of commands which you would oth- 
erwise have to type into the CLI or Shell by hand. 
saved as a text file. Learning how to use Shell or the 
CLI involves learning how to write script files. 

Snedk more up-to-date version of CLI. Works in 
exactly the same way. but enables some flexibility in 
what commands are called via the alias' function. Also 
gives some hot-key combinations to enable some edit- 
ing of previously entered commands. 

Sound Sampler: hardware device that converts 
electrical music signals (typically from a tape or CD 
player) into computer sound. Can also be used with a 
microphone to capture live sounds 

Sprite: a graphic object that is independent of the 
screen. On the Amiga, spntes are limited in size and 
colours Typically used for mouse pointers, alien mis- 
siles, and so on. 



tuence: the name of the script file, con- 
tained in the S directory, which is executed after a disk 
has booted Typically contains Just the name of a pro- 
gram to auto-run. but can be very complicated 
Whatever the nature of the file, it must always be 
called Startup-sequence and live in the S directory. 

Mrerhbench: the set of programs which set up a 
graphical pomt-and-click' interface on the Amiga. 
Much more friendly than the CLI or Shell, but not as 
flexible. Always has to be loaded from disk, which is 
slow but does enable much customisation. Workbench 
2 requires a Kickstart 2 ROM. Workbench 1.3 requires 
a 1 3 ROM, 1 .2 needs a 1 .2 ROM and so on. 

Zerrei this the generic name for the Amiga's expan- 
sion connector The A500, A500 Plus and A1000 had 
the original Zorro I: the A1500S and the A2000s have 
Zorro II; and the A3000 has Zorro III. They are not 
compatible, hence the different expansions for differ- 
ent machines. The A600 and new A1200 have a 
PCMCIA connector instead.

NEW LATE NIGHT SHOWROOM OPENING UNTIL 7PM, WEDNESDAY TO FRIDAY 



AMOS ADVICE 





Pat McDonald has been inundated with your queries about the 

fascinating, and sometimes frustrating, AMOS program we gave 

away on Coverdisk 42. Here he alleviates some of your problems... 



a disk, call it Extras and follow the instructions 
until I lid it to: 

Extracting: (32768) 76576 RAM0S1.3 

A system request then asks for the Coverdisk (it's 
already in the drive) and then nothing, hut nothing, 
works. I can't give out programs without RAMOS, 
so what do I do?

UJ 



FROM: FERDIE VAN ASSCHE, 
THE NETHERLANDS 

Is it possible to include machine code routines 
within AMOS programs? This would save me a con- 
siderable amount of time, because I am a machine 
code programmer myself . 

Yes, it is possible. You need to know the address of the 
code in memory, and then this command will execute 
the raw machine code. Don't forget the RTS command 
at the end of your assembler routines, otherwise your 
machine will crash: 

CALL address 

As for how you get the code into memory, you can 
either have a list of data statements and POKE it in. 
same as the old magazine listings used to do. or 
use this command to load binary files into a known 
memory location: 

BLOAD address 

If vou want to save a block of hinarv code, then this 

does the job: 

BSAVE address, length 

Both methods are dead handy when you want to 
load in game-save positions and alter them. I would 

never have finished Eye "f the Beholder 2 without 
cheating massively! 

WON'T! 

FROM: CHRIS GRANT, BALDOCK 

I can't load in the listings from the Easy AMOS 
demo that you had on your Coverdisk into AMOS. 
Does this happen with all Easy AMOS listings? 

Our Easy AMOS demo had crunched listings to save on 
space, which is why they won't work on AMOS. You 
can swap programs with the full commercial version of 
Easy AMOS and AMOS without problem. 



FROM: JAMES EMERY. BYEEEET 
Is it possible to load pictures and animations 



AHOS BOBS IN AC 




from Deluxe Paint III into WIOS, to use in my pro- 
grams? And how about using Quartet and 
SfereaM aster soundtracks? 

You can easily load in IFF pictures into a given screen 
by using: 

LOAD IFF "filename" , screen number 

Animations lANIM files). Quartet and StereoMaster 
sound files are not supported by AMOS though. Sorry, 
it's strictly Noisetracker and straight Ills only I regret. 

WEIRD LOOKS 

FROM: MICHAEL RICHARDSON, 

FELIXSTOWE 

I have sussed out how to load my own IFF pictures, 
but they always look really strange. What am 1 
doing wrong? 




If you get this sort of horribly distorted off-colour picture, 
chances are you haven't opened your own custom screen. 

You have to open a screen in the correct resolution 
with enough colours to display the picture. The form 
for doing this is: 

SCREEN number, height, width, colours, 
re s 

n is the number of the screen (0 to 7 - is the default 
screen) the height and width are in pixels, colours is 
the number of colours used, and res is zero for low res- 
olution. SS.(MK) for high resolution. If you add 4 to 
this resolution number, interlace mode will be used. 
Then you can load in all of your IFFs and they will 
look all right! 

To display a screen, use: 

SCREEN SHOW number 

And to remove a screen from being displayed, use: 

SCREEN HIDE number 

Vou have to HIDE :i screen before you can SHOW it. 
Easy when you know how. 



Don" I formal the disk using the Workbench to point 
and click. Instead, use this at the Shell: 

il Drive DFO: name Extras noicons 
OFS 

That should do the job. Sorry for the oversight. 



FROM: ERIC BALDWIN. BARNET 

I cannot get the Extras disk to decrunch. When I 
double click on the icon, my A 1 2(1(1 tells me that 
I. HA cannot be found. Where is it? Has il been 
removed from Workbench X! 

II was never on Workbench - it's on the Coverdisk. 
You must be double clicking from your own 
Workbench. What vou should do is bool the 
Coverdisk. and double click from there. 

SLOW, NO, NO 

FROM: SHAL'N A LITTLE. SWINDON 

Every lime I want to load or sa\e a file, the file 
requester lakes ages to read in Ihe whole disk direc- 
tory. Is there a way to make it quicker? Can I sa\e 
oul .Xaisetracker music files for use in other pro- 
grams? Finally, why can't I change the text in the 
Serollv Text demo? 




Many experienced AMOS programmers prefer to write 
their own file requesters, because the included one is naff. 

The only way I've found to speed up the file requester 
is to click on the file name that I want as soon us I see 
it. No. you cannot save out Noisetracker files from 
within AMOS. You can only load them. 

I have nothing concrete on Ihe Scrolly Text demo. 
but 1 would imagine thai some of ihe graphics are pre- 
calculateil and .so cannot be altered. O 



The toy AMOS demos we.e aunched by Eu.opress In ™>M: GRAHAM WHARTON. PRESTON 

order to take up less disk space. They don't load in AMOS. I can't decrunch the hvtras disk properh ! I format 



DEVPAC CONTINUED? 

I regret that there is no Assembly source code 
for all you budding machine code programmers 
this month. This is for a very simple reason - 
we haven't got any! 

And if we don't acquire any. there is a seri- 
ous chance that the series will stop. Anyone 
with any source code should send it to; Devpac

QVW.isv could \mi prini .1 irlrlng diagram lor 
a SCART-to-KtiB lead - in other words, 
how do I connect m> Amiga to a SC ART lele\ision? 




Many Japanese SCART sockets expect pin 8 to hove 12 
volts on it. Simply put a wire to pin 22 on the Amiga side. 

All's not quite that simple. There are three kinds 
of 21 pin SCART-likc connectors. There's real 
SCART. Emoconnectof and Pcritelcvision. They all 
look identical. So unless you consult your TV manual, 
there's very little hope of getting a cable to work. 

Here arc the connections you have to make. 
Connect the analogue Red. Green and Blue (RGB) out- 
puts, the composite synchronisation signal (composite 
sync) and the video earth. In addition, there's a signal 
connector (usually pin S of the TV-side of the lead) 
which must have 1 2v on it. This is not to power the TV 
n merely tells ii that there's something plugged into 
1 he SC'AR'I socket. Add to this .1 paii of phono plugs 
lo pump sound through the SCART connector (left, 
right audio signals and left, right audio ground) and 
you really arc better off buying a ready-made SCART 
cable instead of building your own. 

a I own an A 1 200, and I am unsure whether lo 
gel an FPU chip for it. What arc the bene- 
fits? Will a lot of software make use of it? 




Why do simple questions need complex answers? Well, they don't 
always, as you'll find out with techie-friendly Pat McDonald... 

A The benefits arc ihat you can run special ver- 
sions of software that would lake much longer 
to run without such a chip. Floating Point Units are 
designed specifically to perform maths on fractional, 
real numbers. The only software that really makes use 
of such chips are ray tracers (solid modelling pro- 
grams) such as Imagine 2. 

However, the situation may change gradually over 
time. If more machines have FPUs, then programmers 
will write more software to lake advantage of them, 
which means even more machines will gel FPUs - it's 
a technology spiral. The point is. with computer hard- 
ware, you are generally better off wailing until the 
price drops. As a final note though, hardware prices 
can (and sometimes do) go up instead of down! 

QI have a lot of short samples on my hard 
drive. How do I go about playing them from 
the Shell or CLI? 

A You need a sample player program, such as 
Play590. This program was released on 
Coverdisk 19. but has since become widespread 
through the Public Domain. So if you want it. call 
around the PD libraries until you find one with that or 
a similar program. The advantage of PUiy590 is that ii 
was written to play samples from hard disks, rather 
than just being a general purpose sample player. 




The Fountain program on Workbench 2 will not work with- 
out the right library from the Fonts disk. 



Q 



How do I get the Fountain program to work 
on Workbench 2? 



A Copy the Diskfont. library file from the Fonts 
disk into the Libs drawer of a copy of the 
Workbench 2 disk, to replace the standard bitmapped 
Diskfont. library file. Just select Show/All files from 
the Windows menu, and click and drag the icon. The 
fountain program will noi work wilhoul the correct 
library though. 

QI do a lot of word processing with my trusty 
A5IM) Plus and Final Copy II, but when I am 
using a lot of graphics on a page, the program tends 
to slow down quite a hit. I only have the basic 
machine, so would fitting an extra 1Mb of memory 
help solve this problem?

Unless you select 'Print to screen' from the print menu, 
Prodota behaves very strangely indeed! 



Q 



How do I do an alphabetical sort? 



Alt's complicated. The tdea behind Prodata is that 
the database isn't changed. However, your view 
o! the database - the layout - can be custom tailored to 
give alphabetic and numeric orders. These viewpoints 
are never updated on the database itself, because it 
you had a realty huge database, then it could take 
hours lor the program to reorder it 

Instead, you alter the index lor a database. The 
index is just the same as an index in a book - It's a way 



PRODATA SPECIAL 

of ordenng the information without actually writing the 
book starting with all the words that begin with a, then 
the bs. then the cs and so on. OK. here's how you do 
an alphabetic index - there's one built in as a default to 
all databases, but you can change them easily. First, 
after you have loaded a database, press A to Alter it. 
Then select I for Index- 
After that, you can view the current index, delete 
an index (you can have up to 99 different indexes per 
database) or create a new one. Press C to do the last 
one. The first thing that Prodata needs to know is which 
field to base the primary index on. For a name and 
address file, this should be set to the Surname field - 
that's field number one on the example database 
included. Next, the program needs to know whit sort of 
order to perform on that field. You enter a number, from 
one to five; one means an alphabetic ASCII order 2 
means a numeric search; 3 is a reverse numeric; four is 
date order; and five is reverse date order. In this case, 
press one tor a simple alphabetic search. 

Nearly there - you also need to give a length for 
the order. The default is 15 characters, which is fine for 
most purposes. You can scan up to the first 45 charac- 
ters, but most surnames are much shorter than that. 

After that, you can add extra search fields {for fore- 
names) so that if two people are called Smith, the 
program will search by the forename. These proce- 
dures read like Greek - sit down and play with the 
program as described above, and hit Esc to return to 
the main menu. Doing it is easier than explaining it. 



QI can't ever seem to get Prodata to print the 
whole set of records. What exactly am I 
doing wrong? 

A You're almost certainly using the Display option 
from the mam menu. This shows you the 
database before the Index is applied - the raw. natural 
state of the database. It you go to the Pnnt menu, and 
select Pnnt to Screen (or Print to Printer) then all 
selected files will be pnnted. 



Q 



When I add a record to the database. 
Prodata Ignores it. Why? 



A This is probably because you haven't selected 
all the records. You need to keep the key on the 
left-hand side of the space-bar pressed down, and hit S 
at the same time. Notice how the number of Selected 
records (displayed top nght) changes - set it to the 
highest value, and all records in the database will be 
included tor searches and filters. 



Q 



How do you move from record to record? 



A Hey. the keys were printed on Page 14 of the 
Prodata issue {AF43). Check them out there! 
Basically, you just use the left and right cursor (arrow) 
keys - if you want to jump to the first or last record, 
hold down the Control key at the same time. 



AMIGA ADVICE 




Adding extra RAM will not speed up any program, includ- 
ing the quite excellent Final Copy 2. 



A No. it won't make the program any faster - it 
will merely let you pui more graphics and 
detail on to your pages. 

QHow do I put something out in the Public 
Domain, such as a game, demo, animation 
or a music track? 

A Send it to as many different Public Domain 
libraries as you can. If it's good, it will travel 
(be copied and recopiedi. If it's noi up to scratch, then 
the libraries probably won't be bothered lo put it in 
Iheir catalogues. 

Ql ha\e seen many examples of using the 
Assign command with a hard dri\e. Did you 
get it wrong in Amiga Formal 42? 

A Yes. Well, the idea was sound, but the example 
I gave was wrong. To get the version of 
Octamed given away on the Coverdisk working, the 
line should have had quotation marks around it. This is 
alwa\s the case with pathnames thai contain spaces. 



Q 



How does an optical mouse differ from an 
ordinary mouse? 



A Optical mice have no moving parts, so ihcy last 
longer. They have a smoother, but slower 
response. So. in theory, are slightly better for freehand 
drawing. The drawback is thai you have to use optical 
mice on special mouse mats. 



Q 



How about doing one Coverdisk demoted 
purely to utilities and Public Domain stuff.' 



A What is the point of supplying commonly 
available utilities and Public Domain disks 
when they are already available from Public Domain 
libraries? We do like to put serious programs on to the 
Coverdisk. but only because they're cither necessary to 
all Amiga owners (such as virus checker programs) or 
because the programmer wants it that way. 



Q 



Will there ever be a Motorola 6H060 CPU 
chip, and will it be available inside Amigas? 



A Yes. there will be a 6X060. It will probably be 
built into high-end Amigas, A version of the 
A4(XX) with such a processor will probably happen. 
However. I doubt if it will enter into common usage 
until well into the next century. It promises a lot of cal- 
culation power, but the price tag will take many years 
to come down before Commodore will seriously con- 
sider fitting it to "home' Amigas as a standard item. O

This is the Preferences screen 
from Workbench 3. After you 
have copied any suitable 
drivers to the devs/prlnters 
drawer, then they will oppeor 
in the list of available printers. 

Other versions of 
Workbench use different pro- 
grams, but the theory is pretty 
much the same. Oh yes, on 
Workbench 3 you have to copy 
the Prefs program icon to the 
RAM disk, ond double elkfc on 
if from there. This is because 
Workbench 3 wasn't fully 
tested lo work on floppies only 
— for shame. Commodore! 



IThe most important thing to remember is that 
there are thousands of different models of 
printer. To add to the confusion, there are different 
versions of Workbench, and the differences that 
usually occur are In the way Workbench handles 
printers. Using an older version ot Workbench (say 
booting with Deluxe Paint ///) can often fix printer 
problems temporarily. 

2 You want to know about permanent fixes? 
Right, there are four files In the devs direc- 
tory of Workbench called printer.device. 
parallel. device, serial. device and system-configu- 
ration. The last file Is where details of your printer 
setup are stored. Using different versions of these 
can also fix printer programs with older software. 

3 Printer drivers are special translation files. 
They translate the ANSI characters that the 
Amiga uses into the weird escape control codes 
that you'll find In the back of your printer manual. 
Because there are so many variants of printer, 
there are many kinds of printer driver. The best 
ones to try are EpsonX, EpsonQ, NEC Pinwriter 
and IBM ProPrinter. Do not think that you get all 
possible printer drivers free with all Amigas - 
often you have to search high and low to find the 
best (or sometimes only choice of) printer driver. 

4 The drivers live on your Extras disk. In a 
drawer called Printers. To be usable by the 
Amiga, they have to be copied to a drawer called 
Printers in the devs drawer of your Workbench 
disk. If you are happy about copying files from A 
to B. using a program like SID or Directory Opus, 
then that's all you need. But if you don't know how 
to copy files from one disk to another, here are a 
few guidelines. Remember to do all changes to 
backup copies of your disks, not the originalsl

switch on) have to use the Shell to copy these files 
from the Extras disk on to a copy of the 
Workbench disk. It's a good idea to wipe a couple 
of files from the disk first (the calculator say) in 
order to make space. See the Have a Banana' let- 
ter on Workbench for some guidelines on copying 
using the Shell. 



6 Workbench 2 machines (A500 Plus, A600, 
later A 1500s and the A3000) have It much 
easier. Double click on the Extras disk Icon, and 
then select Show/All files from the Window menu. 
The printers drawer will appear - double click on it 
to see all the drivers. Then double click on the 
Workbench disk icon, select Show All files, and 
the devs drawer appears. Double click on this, and 
then click and drag your drivers across. 

7 Workbench 3 owners (A1200 and wealthy 
A4000 people) should follow a similar proce- 
dure, except that your printer drivers are kept on 
the Storage disk (still in a drawer called printers) 
and you don't have to Show/All files because the 
devs drawer, printer drawer and printer drivers all 
have icons under the new system. 

8 After you have copied the driver, you then 
have to make Workbench use it! This Is not 
too tricky - you use the Printer Prefs program on 
Workbench 1.3, and InltPrlnter on Workbench 2 
and 3. Workbench 3 owners have to drag the icon 
for this to the RAM disk, and run it from there, due 
to a bug in Workbench 3. The same RAM disk pro- 
cedure should be used for selecting keymaps. 

9 One good point about the printer driver sys- 
tem is lust about any program can work with 
any printer. Some programs, like Protext, Prodata 
and IntroCAD use their own custom drivers 
instead. However, many modern printers are not 
driven to their full capability by Amiga drivers. 
Printer manufactures tend to bring out new models 
of printers before anyone has a chance to write 
drivers for the current models. 

as ^% In order to remedy this, some driver man- 
I %# ufacturers like Citizen, Canon and Star are 
writing their own drivers. Panasonic will follow suit 
soon. If you want to get into writing printer drivers. 
then I recommend you get Amiga Printers Inside 
and Out, by Ralf Ockenfelds. It's published by 
Abacus, ISBN 1-55755-087-5 and costs about £20. 
Check out the advertisements to find a copy. The 
software included on the disk is widely available 
from Public Domain libraries (Printer Driver 
Generator) but the book gives you the full low- 
down on printers and drivers.
